Meet Our Staff
Jaci is one of our two jewelry designers on staff, as well as our resident ear piercer!
In fact, many of her clients want her to help them redesign, restore or repurpose family pieces. “I often redesign unwanted jewelry and revive outdated jewelry,” she says. “It’s my job to reinvent these pieces so they are loved and worn again. I often help redesign inheritance jewelry so the heirloom can still live on but in a style more appropriate for the new wearer.”
Regional Sales Director
Marie Hoerr is a sales manager at Nelson Coleman Jewelers, having joined the company in May 2018. “My job is about connecting a piece and a person,” she says. “It is about finding just the way they want to celebrate, remember or show their love through jewelry.”
