"Reflect who you are, with your unique piece."

          Twenty years ago, Tina Ross started working with her mother, Kirsten, as a trial to see if they could operate the family jewellery business together.
          As it turns out, they need not have worried.
          "I am my mother's daughter," Tina says, with a laugh. "We are completely like-minded. We wanted to see if it would work — and it did."
          So much so that Tina, a designer with both high quality new and reworked jewellery, understands what a customer wants and how to express that to her mother, also a designer and one of the goldsmiths onsite.
          "We think alike. Clients love her and she's a talented designer," notes Kirsten, who started the Calgary-based business 48 years ago. Kirsten was also the first female apprentice in her native Denmark 58 years ago.
          According to Tina, their tightknit working relationship is reflected elsewhere, too.
          "Because we have close relationships with our clients, we’re able to create statements of who they are."
