This edition of CMD Staff Spotlight is about our New York Production Artist, Sam. She joined our team with no jewelry production experience, but her passionate spirit and quick learning skills made her a natural fit. I first met Sam on my first trip to our NY studio early this year and she’s just a delight – such a positive and hardworking gal who has quickly developed incredible skills in a really short period of time.
