We married and the business continued under the same ownership. All the beautiful designs you will see in our booth and at our online stores, have been the result of a wonderful and exciting sailing career. We have traveled millions of miles and exhibited and sold our unique jewelry at shows across the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada. We currently live on beautiful Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma. You can visit us across the U.S. throughout the year at miscellaneous exhibits and expos. Email us for show dates and locations.
