Beside her primary occupation as an Interior Designer, Carolyn has sold antiques for several years specializing in antique and vintage jewelry. But we really got started selling gemstones and jewelry when we were traveling in Africa in 1994. While in Arusha, Tanzania we learned we were in the only place in the world where tanzanites have been discovered. This was before tanzanites became extremely popular. We decided to jump in with both feet and bought lots of tanzanites, peridots, garnets, citrines, aquamarines, topaz, amethyst, iolites, scapolites, and other gemstones. We started selling loose gemstones and had some others set for sale in gold and silver in rings, earrings, pendants, etc.

Carolyn has won Honorable Mention in the 2006 National Arts Program for one of her jewelry designs. Click here to see the winner.


Then the next big step was when we decided to start designing more of our own jewelry. We took some of our gemstones and traveled to Bali to work with some of the most skilled silversmiths anywhere. We came back with an incredible collection of jewelry crafted with a variety of gemstones. Since then we've continued buying loose gemstones from a variety of sources and adding more pieces of jewelry in both gold and silver as well as designing and making beaded necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc.
