George, I began making Jewelry in 1964 as a teenager on my own and then studied it in high-school. I attended Edinburgh College in Pennsylvania.

I moved to San Francisco in 1969 and found a position as a goldsmith in a shop called the Arachnid in Berkeley where I worked until I opened my own shop in 1974.

George, I began making Jewelry in 1964 as a teenager on my own and then studied it in high-school. I attended Edinburgh College in Pennsylvania.

I moved to San Francisco in 1969 and found a position as a goldsmith in a shop called the Arachnid in Berkeley where I worked until I opened my own shop in 1974.

I became involved in the Bay Area Metal Arts Guild, and Bay Area art scene and entered and judged several art shows and attracted enough attention to gain the backing required to open a shop on North Point Street in the Marina district of San Francisco. The shop prospered and after three years, I was invited to open a shop in the newly opening Pier 39 complex.

Pier 39 was originally intended as a showcase for artists who had their workshops open to the public. The artists were to get a discounted rate for their rents but as the complex struggled to make a profit it was sold and expenses skyrocketed. During this time I met a wonderful woman, Suzan who was the sister of my shop manager. I married her and we decided to close the shop on Pier 39 and move to Truckee with our two daughters Tami and Kristi.

Suzan has always been an artist so it was natural for her to become a design goldsmith. She has been very successful and has a very strong following of devoted customers and collectors of her work.


Suzan is also a talented knitter and has added her knitting to our etsy shop.
We do a tour of select Highland Games during the summer months as well as selling our work on line.

Foreign orders are welcome but please review costs like customs etc so you will know what to expect in additional charges.
