CEO, Cerese D. Inc.

To Cerese Dolman, semi-precious stones are much more than just
exquisite inanimate objects. The onyx and crystal quartz and other
stones Dolman use to make her captivating necklaces and earrings
actually come to life when they rest in her intelligent hands. It’s as
if each piece has a story to tell, that each stone communicates
directly to Dolman’s spirit. Make no mistake about it: Dolman, the
owner of the jewelry business Cerese D. Incorporated, has a
relationship with her stones.

This is why her necklaces exude such exotic and wondrous beauty,
because they are polished with her love, linked together by her
artistic skills and gift-wrapped in her pleasurable personality. “I say
in my marketing pieces that the stones speak to me and when I’m putting
something together and I know it’s ‘shonuff,’ I get so excited!” she
says as she dissolves in spontaneous laughter. “And I say, ‘they ain’t
ready. They aint’ ready for this!’ ” Oh, but judging from patrons’
reactions to her meticulously molded creations, they are ready for this
Flint, Mich., native’s personally hand-crafted jewelry. The Clark
Atlanta grad used her business administration degree to nurture her
business acumen and interior design career to create some of the most
unique jewelry you may ever see. “Interior design [with a Buckhead
firm] showed me how stones can work together, and the chains and the
metals. It’s classy, but it’s fun. People say it is art. I myself have
never described it to be art. But I believe it to be true.” What’s also
true is that the beauty in her jewelry is a direct reflection of what’s
in her soul. –terry shropshire
