What sets us apart from most of the people I know in my industry is we do it all. We go directly to the mines, or deal directly with an agent for the miners. There are as few middle men in the process as possible. This allows us to control the quality of our rough materials and obtain the absolute best price. We design all of our jewelry in-house. Everything is manufactured by us all by hand. Everything for the most part is done from scratch. We use only the finest of raw materials and sheet silver. This is almost a lost art today but over the years we have stayed true to our course and make the majority of our designs using only simple hand tools and lapidary equipment. This allows us to provide an extremely high quality product and keep our prices reasonable. We do not mass produce anything but focus more on quality and design. This allows us to provide things that cannot be found anywhere else. br />
I still work in many of the better known gemstones like opal, turquoise, lapis, amber, and coral. What we are known for is also brining materials to the market that have never been seen in jewelry designs or in most cases been seen at all. I love to share the stories of the how we found them and the route they had to travel to end up as a finished product.
