Welcome to the Pearls of Wisdom podcast! In this episode of Chatting with Chuck, our special guest is Katelynne Eslick, all the way from Glendive, Montana.
Katelynne is a third-generation jeweler of Sugar Plum Fine Jewelry. This jewelry store has served its community for a solid decade and offers a full-service experience with a sharp focus on custom pieces and top-notch repairs.
She originally thought she’d be an English major, destined for a career in editing books. But life had other plans, and she ended up professionally engaged in fine jewelry for over 15 years.
She shared that for her, the Atlanta Jewelry Show was a golden opportunity to connect with vendors, explore new products, and meet face-to-face with her trusted partners. It’s a chance to get hands-on with jewelry, see the latest trends, and discover unique pieces that might surprise every jeweler, like the elusive gray sapphire she found.
As a retail jeweler, Katelynne also appreciates the show’s unique atmosphere that allows her to focus entirely on her goals, unlike the daily grind of running her store. It’s a concentrated experience that helps her discover new trends and products that might have otherwise been lost in a sea of catalogs.
Katelynne shared how she stumbled upon a fascinating piece of technology, an app-based lightbox that utilizes artificial intelligence to create engaging jewelry videos. This tool has proven invaluable for creating social media content and compelling product descriptions.
In the spirit of exciting discoveries, Katelynne eagerly introduces a new jewelry line she’s sure her customers will adore, especially in anticipation of the upcoming holiday season.
But let’s not spoil it anymore. Tune in now for this informative discussion with Katelynne Eslick and uncover her gems of wisdom that are truly worth listening to!
