Each work of art is lovingly designed with true consideration for the person/s and event that is being honoured.

Chris is the Designer/Goldsmith and Enamellist, and Carol is the Business Manager and Gemologist. Their respective roles in the business are clearly defined: Chris is the artist/craftsman who designs and produces the jewellery pieces in his studio, on the computer and at the bench. Carol is the public face of the of the home-based business and can be found at events or in the office, meeting and conversing with clients. Both partners are dedicated to their business which naturally results in steady growth and success.

Here are a four things that make Palko Jewellery Design a great working partnership; one that clients come back to repeatedly:

1. Integrity, Trust & Ethics

3. Work Skills & Habits

Chris and Carol Palko are dedicated to their business and both work hard in their respective areas of expertise; Palko Jewellery Design benefits from both points of view and skill sets. Chris has over 35 years of experience in the Jewellery-making industry; he designs and produces the fine-crafted jewellery, commemorative and presentation pieces with a combination of fine handicraft, computer design and technical production skills. Carol is the Business Manager, a great organizer and former medical records specialist; she keeps people and projects well-documented and on track.

In their time off Chris and Carol travel in Canada and the United States exploring the geography, geology, and nature. This gives Chris creative inspiration for his work, and both of them time to relax and recharge.

We focus on co-operation and always come to a resolution, not a compromise. We have a balanced approach to life – remembering that spiritual, social, physical and family aspects are just as important as financial and intellectual.

4. Communications

Chris and Carol are in close communications so they can accurately create their clients’ wishes. Clear communications with their clients is key to their business success. This is a heart-centred business. They listen deeply to their customers which ensures they create the sentiment that inspired the jewellery, commemorative or presentation piece.

Technology is also an important marketing and communications tool used to inform and educate their clients. For example: Carol produces YouTube videos about the jewellery production process and manages all the social media channels.

We help clients by sharing our knowledge and making recommendations so that our customers can make well-informed decisions.
