Women to Women Nevada with Autumn James

This week's Women to Women Nevada interview is with Autumn James, jewelry manager for Northern Nevada Coin. Fine jewelry and precious stones and metals are featured in this segment with Autumn showing some amazing pieces including diamonds, emeralds, and even a sterling silver purse. Learn how to get a great deal on fine jewelry and how to get the best price when selling your own.

Women to Women Nevada, hosted by Carol Paz, is televised on Charter Media every Thursday at 7 pm on Channel 3 (Reno, Sparks, Fernley, Fallon, Lake Tahoe) and 15 (in Carson City, Gardnerville, Dayton) and appears every Friday on Carson Now. The locally produced and privately owned program features Northern Nevada women who are making a difference in their communities and in the region.

The interview style of Women to Women allows for an open discussion on the personal and professional challenges that each guest has been faced with and how she has worked through such struggles. The goal of the program is to offer women hope, support and encouragement as they face their own difficulties. 

Guests range in ages as well as circumstances and come from different cultures, religions, traditions, educational levels and professional achievements. The common thread is that they are willing to share their lives with others in the hope that what they have found and learned can be of benefit to others.
