Smithworks Fine Jewelry is growing, and we’re thrilled to welcome a new employee to our team, Carter Lee Johnson.
Carter recently moved to Spartanburg from New York City after getting married, but her choice to come to South Carolina was a return home. Carter is originally from Charleston. She attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where she studied French and Art History, then moved to New York for a Graduate Gemologist degree from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). At GIA, she also received a certificate in jewelry rendering.
Carter’s professional experience includes luxury product design, product development and merchandising. She has worked for GURHAN, a Turkish jewelry company based in New York, as well as for Tiffany & Co.
Now at Smithworks, Carter will lead our antique and estate jewelry department. Check out our expanded antique and estate section in the store and a catalog of antique and estate jewelry on our website. You may follow Carter with antique and estate posts and blogs on Facebook and Instagram.Posted in Smithworks News
