Edward Norwood said he has always had a passion for creating things.
His new business, The Jewelry Doctor/Norwood Diamonds, will allow him the means to satisfy that passion and a means to create handmade items, he said.
The business is located at 217 Lindell Street inside the Arts Co-op Gallery. It opened June 1, with an official grand opening celebration slated for June 28.
Norwood said he chose to open the business because there has not been a jewelry store in Weakley County for years.
“I’ve always loved creating treasures by hand,” he said. “It’s my addiction. I not only do jewelry repair but also custom work. I enjoy not only expensive diamond jewelry, but also less costly but more unique items with exotic materials.”
Norwood is also a glassblower, potter and woodworker.
“I enjoy using skills and materials from these other passions in works to create one-of-a-kind works of art,” Norwood said. “Even common jewelry repairs are exciting to me as each piece has its own character and secrets to which I must become familiar with.”
Norwood has contracts with manufacturers and diamonds houses, which give him the opportunity to offer tens of thousands of items to his customers through his website and catalogue at his store. He expects to manufacture more in-house items as time goes by.
“Though I am open for business now and accepting repair work and custom orders, my official opening will be during the June 28 Art Gallery and Silent Auction and Fundraiser from 6-9 p.m.,” Norwood said. “The public is encouraged to attend.”
