Listen Up: Professional Enthusiasm and the Costs of Creating Fine Jewelry

Listen Up BY courtney conway 12/19/2016


In this, our last episode of the year (!), Claire and Erica are wearing their Professional Enthusiast titles out loud ‘n proud—to both tell the story behind our new #PEbyOfakind sweatshirts and to quiz fine jewelry designer Anna Sheffield on the cost of gold, expert stone-setters, and the difference between carat and karat. (Anna’s  here for part two of our miniseries on how designers think about pricing—part I thisaway!) We’ll be back on January 2nd with a fresh episode—until then, promise to get in plenty of December R&R?

Also, if you need a quick break from all the holiday family time, then our next #ReadingThings  pick If You’re Not Like Me by Edan Lepucki is for you! It’s adorably pocket-size and the perfect excuse to not go see that blockbuster with your nephews. We’ll be talking about it with Edan herself on January 16th!



The linkage…
