Remarkable Handcrafted English Tudor Collection !

by Roger Dougherty on July 26, 2014

Pictured below are two of a remarkable collection of handcrafted Tudor inspired necklaces. This was a great find for me and an honor to make these available to my customers at Silk and Sterling. The designer artist has borrowed the style of the Medieval Renaissance Era of English history in creating this fantastic collection. I am pleased that she has made them available to me to offer to our American clientele.  As yet I cannot offer them for sale, but expect this will happen in early August. If you are looking for something truly unique, something not available anywhere else from any company or website, well you have found it, at Silk and Sterling. Stand by for more updates as this product becomes available. http://www.silkandsterling.com

From 2 of the Biggest to Here

IMG_0789 BLUE TOPAZ AND WHITE TOPAZ PENDANT NECKLACE Golden Citrine pendant GOLDEN CITRINE AND WHITE TOPAZ PENDANT

In my career I have worked for 2 of the largest corporations in the world. Common sense dictates that I do not mention them here, but suffice to say that one of these corporations has the most recognized logo on the planet. Now I am the owner and operator of my own, albeit one of the smallest companies, here in Jacksonville, FL I enjoyed and learned from all of my corporate experiences, but find myself loving the hardest job I have ever had. However, being in control of one’s destiny has its own rewards.

I am free to inspire and be inspired by online influences. I have doggedly researched my competitors, who likely don’t know I even exist. However, I am gaining ground and will simply sneak up on them, and before they know it, I will have become a vision in the rear view mirror.

I Don’t plan on staying behind for very long. I am constantly adding and improving the quality of the products that I make available to my customers. I offer FREE free shipping and handling, because I refuse to profit from mailing expenses while selling products on the cheap.

I have identified some great products sources in Europe and Asia to compliment the hand made items we offer. I believe is quickly delivering the product to the customer, and manage my profit margin to make these products available to a wider customer base. To me all of this simply makes good business sense. I never understood the concept of trying to make a huge profit on a one time sale, when you can make a reasonable profit on a large number of sales.

Finally, I believe in good old fashioned customer service. Fair prices, quick free shipping, a reasonable return policy and a rapid response to any and all questions and comments. If anyone is interested I am also offering a 10% discount code off of anything on our online store http//www.silkandsterling.com. To receive this discount simple ask for it, by contacting me at” [email protected]. Ten percent off, no minimum, no hassle, no gimmicks. Thank you as always for visiting with me today
