Gerri is the Designer and manufacturer of "Gerri's Jewelry...The Gerri Collection."
The company is Gerri's Jewelry By Design, born in Inglewood, California in 1990, from a hobby that she received great spiritual satisfaction and comfort from.
When she began wearing her designs, Gerri was amazed at the attention and interest from people everywhere she went. Many people demanded to purchase the pieces she was wearing right there on the spot....and Gerri sold it to them because she was really overwhelmed and fascinated at how her designs captivated people!
Back then, Gerri was very shy, and didn't know how to handle all of the attention. But her sister Cindy and good friend Henry knew all to well that this was a Great Opportunity to start a business, so they, as they say, "Got Busy!" Henry and Cindy handled marketing and sales and Gerri continued to design and create new and wonderful, elegant and exciting Wearable Art Pieces....And that is how Gerri's Jewelry By Design was born.
Gerri knows it wasn't her idea but God's idea, she didn't ask for this, God gave her this gift, and she knows that is what people see and feel when they wear her jewelry designs.
Gerri is known to say, "I am the Captain of my ship, but GOD IS MY NAVIGATOR"!
So here we are now, years later, and "The Gerri Collection" is still Extremely Successful!
Gerri is no longer the shy one, but very confident in herself, her designs and her ethical business sense. She has grown in leaps and bounds since the beginning, and still maintains her spiritual values through everything she does. She prides herself in producing top quality jewelry products, and stands behind each and every piece that her company sells. She is a bit of a perfectionist, so she wants to know if there's ever a problem with quality and satisfaction.
Every piece is still hand-crafted and production is still done in-house by her, which insures the quality of every piece.
You may ask, "Why does she call it Wearable Art?" Art is something that may capture your attention from across the room. You find that you must approach it to get a clearer view, your compelled to touch it, you'll want to know all about it, and of course you must then try to Acquire it if it appeals to you! That is the essence of Art, to be Acquired, Admired and Appreciated! That is exactly what happens when people see many of the jewelry designs from Gerri's Wearable Art Collection!
Gerri gives only one "warning" to people about her designs..."if you are a shy person and can't stand attention at all then... Don't Wear Any Wearable Art Designs from "The Gerri Collection" because you will be extremely uncomfortable with all of the attention you will get,"....this is really true! But on the other hand, if you simply Love being in the spotlight, then this is the line for you, and you will enjoy wearing it, we guarantee it!
So that is the essence of Gerri's Jewelry By Design, and we are proud to say "We are Still Going Strong, thanks to all of you out there every where!"
