About

For the past 45 years Charlene has designed and manufactured jewelry of all kinds from simple earrings, pendants, and pins to high-end diamond wedding sets. This started when she wanted a special pendant at the local jewelry store. Her husband, Jim, always the conservative, said they couldn’t afford it and if she wanted it she would have to learn how to make it. She did, and so started her business. She started making jewelry and taking it to stores around the area. This grew to manufacturing and wholesaling to stores in the western accessories market having salesmen all over the country and sales world wide through trade shows. Her business weathered several ups and downs in the western market and as she was getting closer to retirement she focused on livestock related jewelry. This was because her daughters were in 4H and FFA and wanted jewelry to match the animals they were showing. She has done livestock shows like North American Livestock Expo and she still does World Dairy Expo in Madison WI.
