In this episode, I share my interview with Mark Smelzer, the former publisher of JCK and the current Chief Content Executive at Jewelers Mutual Group. Mark started his career in magazine ad sales in Los Angeles when he became the publisher of a city magazine called Buzz. After that, he moved to Variety, the entertainment trade publication, but a corporate shake-up there propelled him to become the publisher of JCK magazine. At the time, 18 years ago, he knew very little about the jewelry industry, but he grew to love it and has seen it go through countless changes. In 2021, he shifted to an exciting new role at Jeweler's Mutual, and he conceived of the event Conversations in Park City, which recently took place in mid-October. I'm really excited to have Mark on the podcast today to chat about his time in the industry as well as his experience of the unique retreat in Utah. In this episode, we'll be covering: What's it like to organize and execute on a major event for the jewelry industry? Why are leadership development and networking events so important for this industry? What are some of the most exciting and invigorating things happening in the industry today? …and more!

United Lasers sells laser engraving systems for almost all industries, but the jewelry industry is his favorite. Many people think laser systems are expensive, but the truth is, it is worth the investment when you have this system and learn what you can do with it.  Many jewelers still do hand engraving, which Adam says has a certain charm, but it requires a lot of time to complete. A laser can do in 30 minutes what hand engraving can do in about 10 hours.  Adam discusses the benefits of a laser engraver, emphasizing that it is a workhorse and does not include any consumables. In addition, he stresses that the laser system can engrave more precisely than when done by hand.  The discussion also extensively covers social media platforms and how they can help a business. He emphasizes being social instead of creative, as well as knowing the language of each social media platform.  Adam says that if you have the time, you do not need the money as far as social media content is concerned. Businesses are always trying to compete for attention on social media. He considers himself a marketing nerd and shares tips on what jewelers should prioritize in digital marketing to grow their business and create a unique customer experience.  Brought to you by: Southern Jewelry News: https://southernjewelrynews.com/ Jewelry Store Marketers: https://jewelrystoremarketers.com/ Learn more about the Pearls of Wisdom Jewelry Podcast https://southernjewelrynews.com/podcast Subscribe on your favorite podcast platform: Apple Podcast = https://podcastsconnect.apple.com/my.-..

"I would consider myself an artist before a jeweler but my medium is obviously metal. I started as a means to travel around with these bands that I like and make money on the side. That's when I was still doing wire wraps and everything like that. The main band I traveled around with was Phish. I did a bunch of years on tour with them and sold my wire wraps and just slowly transition into what I do now," said Matt Fischer, hand fabricated jeweler of Wolfmans Sun Designs.Matt's jewelry career lifted off while he was living in Colorado and his customers are mainly on social media. Every time he launches a piece it's sold within hours. "I've been fortunate enough to have a really good following on social media and have that kind of support to where I'm able to just focus all my time on one of my original creations and have them be scooped up in a pretty timely manner. And it's funny, because some people always say, Oh, are you going to open a storefront? Are you going to do that? Maybe that would be cool someday. But that's just not something I'm really interested in, especially with the way social media is nowadays. I have a website, I just don't tend to use it because I'll post something or I'll hype it up on Instagram stories. By the time I get around to posting it, a lot of times it's already been claimed or somebody's doing a payment plan on it or something like that. Social media is my full-time job. I love it and I hate it. But it's a very good tool," said Matt.He enjoys that his customers appreciate his style and they typically don't ask for custom work -- where the client typically drives the creativity of the piece."I always start with the center stone, that's always my main inspiration point. Once I have the center stone in hand, I always try to think of like, what kind of color palette could I do with this? My accent stones are my painting, and I have to decide what colors are gonna pop with this piece. Then I'll just start freehand styling around it on either the iPad, sometimes I'll use pen and paper, but usually on the iPad. Upload the image and start designing around it until I have something that I'm really feeling. Sometimes that can be a day, sometimes that can be a couple of days designing around there. Once I'm really feeling something, I just get to town on it. The process goes from design to melting down all the metals into the piece components I need to fabricate. That all usually takes two to three days to make the piece then once I have the piece made, then I'll do the same thing with my engraving, I'll upload the piece into the iPad, and draw around, figure out what I'm wanting for engraving with the space I have available, then I'll do my engraving, which I can usually rock out a full back piece in a day, maybe two if I'm being slow. Then from there, I set all the gems and call it a day. But a lot of my inspiration comes from the psychedelic art scene of painting. So I'm really into that. I'm really into the freedom of expression that happens within the jam band scene. You know you hear the same song five times, but it's completely different every time, and that kind of inspiration and lifestyle, I feel really impacts my work," said Matt.The piece he worked on for the Big Reveal was quite challenging but rewarding at the same time."It can be stressful, for sure I try to not really focus on that. I let the experience unfold. In my creative process, I do all hand fabricated work. I don't do any CAD or wax sculpting or anything like that. All my work starts out as little rolling gray of gold, I melt everything down, and I roll out all my sheet. But the designing process for this one was a little bit challenging because the gem is so big. A lot of my work is more small, it's not so robust. I work a lot in the two to seven karat range for center stones. This one is 18 karat. Trying to design something around this big gem still felt authentic to my style and represented me as an artist and something that someone could look at and be like, Oh, that's a Wolfmans Sun piece or something like that. It was an engineering challenge to come up with a design, but I'm happy with it," said Matt.To see Matt's final piece follow the Makers of the USA on Instagram and Facebook and Maine Mineral & Gem Museum on Instagram and Facebook as well as the images will be posted on both of those social media platforms.To view Matt Fischer's work follow him on Instagram.

He became the publisher of a city magazine called Buzz. When it went under, he moved to Variety—the entertainment trade publication, which is what eventually drew Mark to New York City. After a corporate shake-up at Variety, he was informed that he was the publisher of JCK magazine. Hedda Schupak, JCK's editor-in-chief at the time, said, “Welcome to the jewelry business. It's not unlike the Hotel California. You can check out any time, but you can never leave.” Eighteen years later, her words ring true.His First ImpressionsMark knew very little about jewelry in the beginning, not having much personal connection to it. He reflects on how much the industry has changed in 18 years. It used to be more male-dominated and traditional, but it's always been warm and welcoming. It was the first time he had to sell advertising directly to business owners.The Evolving Role Of PrintMark compares his time in publishing to selling horse-and-buggies right before the advent of the Model T. There are areas where print still resonates: city magazines, niche books, and catalogs. “Print is not dead, but, boy, did it morph and change," he says.The Shift To Content MarketingThere was a gradual shift from writing stories and articles to writing “content.” When the internet became usable by laypeople, the ability to publish content became more widely accessible to the masses. Victoria ties this shift to what Mark is doing at Jewelers Mutual with the Zing Report. His task was to raise awareness of the Zing marketplace—a hub for the variety of services that Jewelers Mutual offers. Content includes upbeat articles, interviews, and more.Jewelry Sales PredictionsMark hopes the pandemic sales spike will continue. He says that the pandemic reminded a lot of people of the emotional side of jewelry. Will the industry be in a better place than it was pre-pandemic? That remains to be seen.What Can The Industry Do Better?What do we need to overcome in the current economy? The jewelry industry could be more digitally savvy. Retailers should work toward making the in-store and digital experience more seamless. Mark remembers a “Got Milk”–style campaign he worked on with Jewelers of America. It raised awareness of jewelry using the slogan, “Another piece of your story." Then the pandemic came along, it was shelved, and jewelry had such a great two years that it was no longer needed.How The Industry Has ChangedIt has become a younger, broader industry with more diversity and inclusion. The jewelry business is richer when a greater variety of people is included. He ties how energizing that experience of connection can be to Jewelers Mutual's upcoming retreat, Conversations in Park City, which will feature networking opportunities, meaningful conversations, big ideas, and fun activities.
