Cookies and Jewels
Yes, they do go together, when Frank, of Franklin & Co, makes his big and delicious cookies for the artist
reception. Last night, at the Art Hop was no exception; cinnamon, almond, yum !
The streets were crowded with people going from place to place to see the art on display.
There was even a band set up under the tent, for music and street dancing.
My conversation continues with Frank.
I ask him how he got started in the jewelry business. He said that when he was in high school he had an hour of class to fill, so he took a class, working with silver, which he loved. Although his Major was music in college, he kept" falling into" jewelry jobs, because of his experience in repair. When his brother accepted a job in Austin, Frank decided to open his own jewelry store in close by, Georgetown.
Franklin & Co specialises in unique jewelry which sets him apart from the mainstream jewelry stores.
With all repair work done in-house, you can rest assured that your valuables are safe with Frank.
Thank you Frank for the interview, and for being a true friend of the arts.
I wish you much prosperity in years to come.
