The thought occured to me, if you just came about this blog, you are hearing about me for the first time. I am a designer of fine jewelry.  I work on all of my own projects, in my own studios. Custom design is my specialty and I am considered a master goldsmith and platinumsmith. I work with clients on all types of jewelry and design alot of engagement and wedding rings. My styles vary, from very modern and cutting edge, traditional and some that reflect another era.

I also work on designs that are a result of my own ideas.  I like to experiment with different design ideas and love colored gemstones. I hope you will check back on the blog often where I will show new designs, along with posting items that are of interest.

The Beginning....

Welcome to what has been a project that has been on the drawing board for awhile.  Here, new products will be introduced and events will be announced as well as information that is interesting and useful to those who enjoy design, fine jewelry and art.  Since the blog is something new for us, pictured is a custom made engagement ring, the ultimate symbol of new beginnings!

The ring was designed around the center stone, a three-quarter carat emerald cut diamond. Diamonds are set on the top and sides of the setting as well as in the shank of the ring; the sides are hand engraved.

A perfect combination of a modern and classic design and the perfect piece to symbolize a new beginning. We hope to engage you on our blog site and if you have any comments or questions, let us know.
