Hi Dear Friends,
Creating jewelry for you is truly my passion, and it is also my business. So, Bill and I have made some decisions in order to keep our company healthy, not only financially, but for the security and growth of the people who work with us, as well as their families. We have spent many months discussing what the next chapter should look like for Relios. As we enter the new year, we are excited and happy to share with you, our collector family, what 2020 and beyond has in store.
My Team and I have had the privilege, pleasure and challenge of designing, creating, and presenting two successful jewelry brands on QVC over the past 25 years, Carolyn Pollack Jewelry and American West Jewelry, bringing to air over 400 designs per year, for many years.
Today, we are dedicating our design and creative marketing energy and resources to our brand that continues to be extremely popular and growing. It is very rewarding for Bill and me to discover that the same passion for southwestern style and lifestyle that initially drew us together 26 years ago remains a huge part of our life. Through American West Jewelry, we have revitalized how we share the beauty, freedom and spirit of the place we call home with so many people around the world.
American West Jewelry will continue to be a featured brand on air and online at QVC. I will personally continue to be on air at least on every National holiday. And we have an amazing Team here in Albuquerque who are dedicated to designing beautiful, timeless, quality jewelry and creating inspiring and rewarding shopping and social experiences on our websites and social media.
The Carolyn Pollack Jewelry brand has been quite an evolution. I’ve come to know many of you through the Designer Meet and Greet events at QVC, and our own intimate events all across the country. We have seen my brand transition from Sincerely Southwest by Carolyn Pollack, to Sincerely, Carolyn Pollack and finally, Carolyn Pollack Jewelry. Bill and I often talk about how blessed we are to have experienced so many amazing places and to have met so many special friends through this “jewelry journey”. We traveled around the country with our QVC crew during our Summer Across America and Seasons Across America series. As my mom would often say, “Who would have thought a little girl from Mankato, MN would do all of this”? Mom, you inspired me through your positivity, creativity, and love.
Through American West Jewelry, you have joined me during live broadcasts from Santa Fe Indian Market, Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and even our own living room! During many QVC shows, my dear friend Jill Bauer liked to point out that “Carolyn bleeds red, white, and blue”! What a compliment! I truly do love this country, and I am so inspired by the places and the people my journey has introduced me to. And I am so proud to know we have supported and will continue to support and grow American craftsmanship, creativity, and innovation.
Two of my Carolyn Pollack core collections, CP Signature and Lasting Connections, will remain in production and will be available on carolynpollackjewelry.com and at select Macy’s stores and macys.com. And our amazing Stylists at the Carolyn Pollack Gallery in the Gaylord Texan Resort will continue to carry a wide selection of Carolyn Pollack Jewelry, and are always there to assist you in selecting something special.
So, to make a long story a bit longer……for my CPJ lovers, the next few months will be your time to secure the final quantities of the retiring styles that remain in our inventory. I myself am making sure I complete my personal collection during this time, as we literally will not be reproducing these styles again. I have spent the past few weekends organizing my jewelry at home in order to complete my wish list. It has been a beautiful walk down jewelry lane. I have also been rounding up some of my favorite videos from our journeys over the years, including bloopers. I’ll post those in the coming weeks. Many of my past designs were inspired by the places we visited, I will share some of those pieces that remain available, as well.
I would love for you to share your stories, memories and photos of your favorite pieces. Speaking of favorites, I will also be bringing back some of yours in stones that you may not have seen because they have been tucked away in my personal vault.
All of us at Relios appreciate you and will be here to stand behind all your purchases for years to come. We’re not going anywhere!
With Sincere Love and Gratitude,
