Thank You Charlie


For the past eight years, we have been truly honored to work with Charlie Hassler. He has set many diamonds, consulted on complicated jobs and worked on many antiques for us over those years. Many of these techniques take decades to master and are becoming lost with off shore and mass production jewelry taking over the market. Charlie is a true craftsman. Like me from my parents who are both craftspeople, he learned from his father as a teenager at his bench, an age old tradition. The kind of skill it takes to be a talented jeweler is a lifetime of work. Jewelers like Charlie are like alchemists, what they know they know with their hands not just their minds and it took so many years to get there. I have seen magic happen! The most important thing he has done is to teach me to be a better jeweler.

A year ago, when he officially retired from his own business, he passed down his amazing antique and hard to find tools, many antique gemstones, cameos and even a hand engraver from the 1920's. We had pleaded with him for over a year before that to spend the last few months before he moves to Florida with us in our studio in Northampton, and finally he gave in. We were thrilled and a year ago we moved his bench in! It has been such a pleasure, we have learned so much, had so many laughs and we are so lucky for this time. Of the many things Charlie has taught me, one of them stays with me and helps me on every hard day; 'When I was in my 40's, I used to worry like you, but you just have to learn to let it go'. Charlie has become like an uncle to me and I will miss him so much, we all will! We will always be grateful for all he has given us. -Rebekah
