On My Mind…

Hi everyone. I’m a new blogger here — and a new blogger in general — so forgive me if I don’t yet have it “right”! What I’d like to do is use this blog to let you know what’s on my mind, primarily about issues affecting consumers….and thus, the very health of our industry. I hope you’ll tune in and let me hear what’s on your mind as well.



Antoinette Matlins is an internationally respected gem and jewelry expert and well-known author and lecturer. Often seen on CNN, ABC, NBC, and CNBC offering important consumer information, Matlins devotes much of her work to education and consulting within the trade.

Thanks Robyn! I’m on new ground, but I think I’ll get the hang of it…and so far, I’m getting a lot of support and encouragement.

Antoinette – I am so glad to see that you have decided to start a blog – you will love it – and you could have chosen a better place to post than Ganoksin where you have the ear of thousands of Jewelers and Artisans…Welcome!
