Jewelry designer charts remarkable journey

Artisan designs and skilled craftsmanship come together in Federal Way studio

John Profit is the ideal example of things happening for a reason: everything along his career path has brought him to exactly this point, and he couldn’t be happier.

A skilled jewelry designer, Profit works with master goldsmith Jeffrey Buetow at Federal Way’s Jeffrey’s Jewelry Design Studio. With decades of collective experience in all aspects of the industry, the pair’s complementary talents have created the only studio in the south county area doing this level of work.

“I have been very fortunate in my career path. I’ve always been in the right place at the right time, learned from people around me, and taken that information and done something new with it,” reflects Profit, who at Jeffrey’s creates both brand new jewelry and remarkable transformations from existing pieces.

A diverse and rewarding career path

Profit’s first job was at age 14 with longtime Auburn jeweler Jim Weese, who provided an excellent foundation in jewelry design and repair. Next working with prestigious Bellevue jeweler Alvin Goldfarb, “I learned showmanship from Alvin. He was the greatest salesman I’ve ever met and I learned how important it was for people to feel recognized,”he says.

Profit’s career path next stopped at Nordstrom, where many long-standing customer service experts imparted decades of wisdom. “There I learned how important service is,” he says. Faced with a customer dilemma, “I’d ask myself, ‘What would Mr. Bruce do?’ And the answer was that he would do whatever it takes to make the customer happy.”

Taking that knowledge and experience to E.E. Robbins: The Engagement Ring Store was a decision that changed his life. “Working with Emerson Robbins, I became a bridal expert, traveling to Israel and New York – it opened my world,” Profit says. “I was a talker and sales was a natural but because I had started in the business at age 14, and really grew up in it, I also knew what I was talking about.”

As the same time, he taps into an even more valuable skill – listening – and shares a favorite quote: “I’ve never learned anything while I was talking.”

Skilled artisans, one-of-a-kind creations

That ability to listen is especially valuable as Profit and Buetow work with clients to create their ideal engagement ring, wedding bands, or other unique pieces.

“Everything a customer is saying is telling you something about themselves and what they’re looking for,” Profit says. “Jeffrey is a skilled craftsman – there’s nothing he can’t do, and between us, we’ve seen it all. Nothing surprises us!”
