As a jewelry designer, I am blessed to work with many different and great stores throughout the world. I would like to take a few moments to profile each of these fantastic partners.
Juxtapose Art Gallery in Westfield, New Jersey is run by Gerri Gildea, who has been a long time retail partner and supporter of BB Becker Jewelry. Westfield has a large commuter population, with many of its population working in New York City. During a recent conversation, Gerri informed me that her store is located near the town train station, which many locals pass through on their way to and from work.
On that fateful day in September, 2001, Westfield, New Jersey lost 13 of its townspeople. Gerri talks of those lost with a sad wistfulness that we all feel in common.
Not long after September 11, Gerri ordered BB Becker Jewelry set up a display in the window of her gallery. As commuters passed by her window, they would stop and look at the words of inspiration on the shining silver pieces. These words offered inspiration and hope to many who were affected by the happenings at the World Trade Center.
To this day, Gerri still proudly displays BB Becker jewelry in the window of Juxtapose Gallery. She says the jewelry still catches the eye of the commuters on their way to the train.
Thank you, Gerri at Juxtapose Gallery, for helping BB Becker jewelry spread inspiration and hope to those who need it the most.
