(Press Release) “Worldwide Business with kathy ireland” announces an exclusive interview with Naomi Sarna, an award-winning designer and sculptor of precious colored gems.

BJ Hackman, past president of the American Gem Trade Association, said Sarna “is creating pieces that no one else in the trade has done in the past.” He adds: “Naomi is probably the best carver of gemstones worldwide.”

To date, her work has garnered 27 awards internationally and is a part of the Smithsonian Institute’s Permanent American Gems Collection. Sarna’s works are acquired by discriminating art-collectors who enjoy presenting and wearing her unique pieces.

Sarna went to Tanzania to pick a crystal for an international competition. This became her L’Heure Bleu, the world’s largest top-color tanzanite carving. At that time, she began the first of several visits to Tanzania to teach the Maasai women to make jewelry to sell in shops so as to raise them out of poverty. Sarna took notice of the number of women who had cataracts and were unable to perform basic tasks due to the lack of eyeglasses and eye care.

Millions are deprived of basic eye care, because of poverty, isolation and disease. Her work is literally eye-catching and her desire is to help the Maasai see and thereby earn a living. The sale of Sarna’s $500,000 award-winning tanzanite carving, L’Heure Bleu, will benefit the eyecare of the Maasai women who live and work at the source of this jewel.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
