and Suzan Postgate are the owners. We design and make fine custom
jewelery in silver, gold, precious, and semi precious stones. We work
in many different styles from Art Nouveau and Deco to Ancient Celtic

of the Arts.” Sculptors, painters, and other artists apprenticed
with a jeweler before branching off to pursue their own form of
artistic expression because a jeweler had to be proficient in all of
the arts in order to design and create jewelry. This is how we think
of the art of jewelry making.

will surprise and delight our customers on our own as well as making
custom pieces to fulfill a customer's dreams. This is one of the
aspects of our work that delights us because we never know what
artistic adventures and challenges a customer's design will lead us
to? There is nothing we enjoy more than exceeding our customers
expectations with a beautiful creation.

them their most memorable and loved treasures. you will also find
images of many of those same pieces finished.
