“Back to School” traditionally means the end of summer. The kids are sad, and the Moms are mostly not. The new routine sets in as it does every year. Back to school is also something that we, as professionals do to refresh our skills and learn new ones. In today’s fast paced, highly competitive, and ever changing world we go forward with passion and enthusiasm, or we go backward.
We believe in going forward. We love what we do, but we know that we don’t know everything, so we continue to go back to school. We are constantly learning new skills and knowledge, in order to improve ourselves to make our customer experiences outstanding.
Our sales team is constantly sharing information and new discoveries with each other as well as engaging in continuing education in our field. Each of us is passionate about our work and loves sharing that passion with everyone we meet. We have in fact one of the most highly skilled groups in jewelry making anywhere.
