Steves Niece / Web Manager / Miracle Worker

Over 15+ years experience working with startups and small businesses. She has been listed as one of the leading women in technology to follow, has helped authors rebrand themselves, in the 'first name club' for social media early adopters, and featured on HGTV's Flea Market Flip in 2019.

With her wide array of skills, we couldn't be anymore thankful that she's here at New Era Gems.

You can network with her on LinkedIn


Office Manager / Show Sales

You may have heard her voice inviting you to our upcoming shows on your voicemail, or perhaps you saw her Specific Gravity video on Facebook. Tara our office manager has a passion for people and gems.


It all started as a young child throwing rocks on the ground outside a riverbed hoping to find crystals inside. Fast forward to today with her own rock collection later, she has now found herself surrounded by an environment she loves!
