Leon’s brother joined the team and they purchased another booth. As the business grew, they established a suite in the building next to the Exchange, which became their wholesale division. Leon’s business continued to scale as they worked on wholesale, and when another space opened up next to their suite, they purchased it and made it their center for manufacturing. This was a pivotal moment for Leon’s business, as he began to deepen his knowledge of manufacturing jewelry and learned the ins and outs of the craft, despite not having a background in it. He brought the jewels to the center, created designs, and made the jewelry himself. It was truly a labor of love.
