Paula’s workshop and retail store grew from a tiny shop on Lexington Avenue to the spacious state of the art workshop and retail fine jewelry store you find on Haywood Street today.
Staff, both sales and jewelers alike, have come and learned and moved on.
Some things have not changed:
Marlene, our showroom manager, and Pete, our master jeweler, have been here for many years and continue the dance with Paula and Carol.
Although Paula’s work has evolved, her sentiment has not changed. As she told one interviewer back in 1991, “My ultimate goal will always be to design a piece of jewelry, perfect in form and function and craftsmanship. The problem is my rules keep changing and I keep expecting more and more of myself.” This is still true today.
We continue to pursue our goals to achieve excellence in all we do, survive the onslaught of chains and the internet and continue our commitment to our customers, our neighborhood and community.
Thursday, June 7th 6pm – 8pm.
