This month, Mizzie and I featured uber-cool accessories boutique, Sleeveless as our Spotlight Store. What you may not know is Sleeveless shares their space with an estate and custom jewelry broker service, Giador. Lindsay Chapman is the owner of Giador. She's absolutely lovely and can help you find that stunning piece of jewelry that is unique to you. She was naturally the perfect fit for this month's Get to Know.
You Can Never Have Too Many: Killer BOOOOOOTS!
Your Most Amazing Estate Jewelry Find: Honestly, the most amazing finds are those that were made for the exact client I am helping. The perfect vintage ring in the budget of a sweet client that thought their budget would only allow for a ring that would fall flat. It happens like magic and it's the most exciting feeling in the world! I actually had a hand in giving them the dream ring. It makes my job a very rewarding hobby!
The Piece of Jewelry that Started It All: A 1970's free form 18kt gold ring set with a rough cut Columbian emerald......it was me and birthed excitement in providing "personality pieces"!
The Best Advice You Can Give Someone Getting Ready to Make a Jewelry Investment: Think through what is important to you.....and remember that a piece of jewelry is merely the representation of the sentiment behind it. Buy with a considerate and thoughtful heart. Buy for a person not to simply buy.
Your Dream Jewelry Piece: I don't personally dream of jewelry...but I do dream of the perfect piece for my clients. The relationship is what I love and, of course, the pride in giving more than is asked for a better price and with better quality. It allows me to lay my head down and dream...not worry or feel uneasy.
You Couldn’t Live Without: My faith. It's how my business was born and the backbone of everything I do.
Inspirations: Smart and ethical business owners, Vintage jewelry, successful friends, old people....they remind me that they did it, they made it through it all, and I will too.
Favorite Escape: A good run or a cup of coffee.
