27Co Jewellery & Repairs is an independent contemporary store that focuses on jewellery repairs and custom work.
The store is owned and operated by Goldsmith Christie Wipprecht. The name is based off the element on the periodic table for Cobalt. The store’s name pays homage to Christie Wipprecht’s family roots in Cobalt, ON.
Christie was born and raised in North Bay and is proud to be able to contribute to her hometown.
Christie spent 10 years learning the goldsmith trade under Master Goldsmith PJ Walsh and completed a three year advanced diploma in Jewellery Arts at George Brown College in 2011.
The store will soon be celebrating three years in business at 118 Main St. W. North Bay.
