"All our jewelry is produced in here our studio - Made in the USA. We use SOLID gold or silver. Our pieces are heavy, and constructed to last for a lifetime of daily wear. Sadly, most top designer jewelry has very little precious metals (gold or silver) because it's formed with a hollow inner core, or is electroformed. Plus most of what you see in stores is produced in foreign countries. We only use SOLID gold or silver, and we produce here in our studio in the US." Note: We don't have the time or expertise for website programming & website security, and find Etsy & EBay Stores cost efficient, time efficient, and most importantly safe.

In business from 2002 to 2016
After 12 years in business, we lost our business this Christmas. I don't have any way to process online orders. PayPal, my only merchant credit/debit card account shut me down. A customer scammed our business and eBay & PayPal didn't support me, even with a ton of evidence & over 12 years of business history. The customer stole $13k worth of gold jewelry, and attempted to return fake gold instead of the genuine pieces that I made for him. Since I can't work & pay bills, I'm forced to speak to a bankruptcy attorney. Sadly, Christmas is normally our busiest season.
