Why Custom Design?

Why Custom Design?

Can't find a design you really like?  If you have a great idea for a piece of jewelry and just can't find it anywhere, then consider a custom design, made especially for you.  All of the jewelry on my website is designed and made by me, personally and 'The Gallery' contains many of my one-of-a-kind custom orders.  Distance is never a problem, as I can scan and email drawings and photos of work in progress.  And you can talk to me directly and work with me personally.  Now, that's something you won't find in a commercial jewelry store!








I love Palladium

White metal has become a very popular choice for wedding set designs. With the current and continuing volatility of the metals market however, the price of Platinum wedding bands is over-budget for many couples. But there is good news for Platinum lovers!  Palladium is a beautiful and elegant metal alternative to Platinum, at one third the cost.

Palladium is related to Platinum as one of the five 'Noble Metals' and it looks very similar in its whiteness.  It has a weight akin to white gold but it is much whiter and it will not tarnish like Silver.   Allergic reactions to Palladium are extremely rare.  Additionally, most Palladium used in jewelry today is mined in the USA under strictly controlled standards.  No "dirty" metal here! 

So, think about Palladium as a white metal choice.  I personally love working with Palladium.  I love the cool feel and its super-white color.  Any of my designs can be ordered in Palladium so please ask.  This lovely precious metal was named after Pallas Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, and is a wise choice!

Our New Location

So many changes this past year!  A new business, a new location and new designs.

Pam is still working for and with me, and we are now ensconced in our cozy Ninth Street Studio.   Our hours for custom design work are mostly by appointment but Summertime will find our doors open.  We are friendly and fun so stop in and say Hi!  

A big "Thank You" to all who attended our Open House earlier this year!  It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and rings and pendants and...and...  We will have another one soon.

In the meantime, we've worked hard on this new website and we have arrived!   We hope you check back often as we continue to add new work.
