Sandra Pearson

Born in Whitby in 1953, Sandra left school in 1968 to work for Mr Frank Kirk at Kirks Jewellers, Flowergate, Whitby. Sandra trained in all aspects of the jewellery trade from buying and selling to small repairs, rethreading, displays, stock levels, invoicing and valuations. Later, Sandra worked for Helen Taylor as a main buyer and also gained a diploma from Mikimoto Pearls.

In 1994 Sandra moved to Youngs Jewellers and worked for Anne for 10 years using all her knowledge gained previously. In 2004 Sandra went into partnership with Nadine and Cathryn when Anne retired and sold the shop. The shop has carried on in the same way, maintaining the high standards that Anne set.
