Roxie met Sharon, the creator and owner of Wallin & Buerkle, many years ago at the Americas Mart show in Atlanta. Instantly, she knew she had found someone who understood her aesthetic and who created meaningful pieces of jewelry that any woman would love to wear.
Over the years, Roxie has sold many of Sharon’s creations in our brick and mortar store, The Shoppes at Fourth and Cherry, in Ocilla, Georgia. Sometimes women purchase the jewelry for themselves, but many times, it makes the perfect gift for someone special or to commemorate a special occasion.
What I love about Wallin and Buerkle jewelry is how Sharon combines natural gemstones from all over the world with sweet charms into such simple, beautiful, wearable art. Although Sharon sources precious gems and metals from all over, she creates each piece by hand and with love in her studio located in Oregon.
I (Jorjanne) have a silver necklace with my two boys’ birthstones, a “J” initial pendant, and a tree of life charm given to me by my husband on Mother’s Day to remind me of how important (and how long) the job of raising my boys truly is. I also have a gold necklace a with a “J” script initial pendant, a smoky topaz pendant, and a small pearl charm, honestly, because I wanted a gold necklace that would go with anything, and every Southern woman knows that pearls go with everything!
Speaking of that truth, you’ll be glad to know that you can purchase a Wallin and Buerkle charm necklace in your choice of silver or gold with an initial charm and a freshwater pearl accent charm at The Southern Mercantile! What Southern woman wouldn’t love to have one of those?!
