On Etsy since 2012

Extraordinary Jewelry and Home Decor - 20 yrs to over 100 yrs. old.

I CAN do LAY-AWAY now. Coming to Tucson Gem Show?
CONVO me .. ALL NATURAL VINTAGE CABS / MATERIALS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I left a Mid-Atlantic city for the Southwest in the Mid-50s. and never
looked back. Now, I am reaching out through this shop to introduce
myself and the especially fine items that have been my good fortune
to have...this is really fun and a pleasure to work on and to hear from
buyers who are the proud and pleased new owners. (feel free to
see reviews)...A Special Vintage item in your home can add true pride.
AND a Fine Modernist Jewelry design can add true pride as you dare to
be different!

Studio CLD came into being in 1985 with the fabrication of a few
jewelry designs by Carl Lewis Druckman. I began as the chief book
keeper and Inventory slave! Now, I am the sole owner. We no longer
produce jewelry except as a VERY special order. I am selling inventory
from 1980's including Opaque Mineral Cabs and Un-Enhanced (Natural)
Faceted Stones purchased c. 1985 to 1994 (Vintage in Etsy world). Most
of the Finished jewelry was made between 1988 and 1990 and are Ltd or
OOAKs / Prototypes of high carat gold and .925 Sterling Silver. Please do
a Google Search THE ART OF CARL LEWIS DRUCKMAN to see his much
published pieces.

I have added "Curator" of this shop to my resume. As I age, so do the
objects left in my charge! Collections of American Mid-Century, Mexican
and Scandinavian Metalwork, Gems and Eccentricities: in Glass,
Ceramics, Pottery, Metal and Wood!. Native American and European,
California to New England and Canada and South America...all before
"Global Economy" was a pet phrase.

I research the provenance, history and pricing. I will never hesitate to
say in the listing that "I don't know" or "I am not sure". I do have people
to ask and have been left with much information. On the other hand,
YOU know what you are looking for and you will know "IT" when you
see it. I am not a flea market shop. Gold is Karat Gold and Silver is
Sterling .925 unless noted in a description. . If you think my price is
way off please, don't go way insulted... discuss it with me.

You and I can arrange lay-away too. I can now do "lay-away" for
anything in my shop over $ 100. PLEASE "Follow" my shop as this
should make purchasing possible for you...just CONVO me. I will
"RESERVE" for you while we work it out.

Meanwhile, do browse here often and let me know if you are looking
for something you collect or want. My inventory is so broad in scope:
I just might have your "needle in a haystack" item. AND, if you are
needing a GEM quality material. PLEASE ASK. I have three dozen
trays of VINTAGE CABS including many PAIRS and small FINE
faceted VINTAGE Fancy Yellow Diamonds and Whites (Russian too)
and Colored Gemstones. ALL NATURAL and vetted by reputable
dealers. Please see www.carllewisdruckman.org...you'll be glad you
did.

If one of his wonder-full color-full pieces appeals to you, let me know.
I can give you the details, move it into this shop and see how you
feel about it. Carl's designs are timeless, versatile FINE JEWELRY.
He had great fun designing and working with the best Lapidaries &
jewelers/metalsmiths. He was GIA trained, tested and a Graduate.
His passion for American Indian Metalwork and "Studio Jewelry"
began when he was about 10. There was no question "what will I
be when I grow up?"...he knew! He was blessed with a keen eye.

I look forward to your visits to STUDIO CLD and to talking to you.

Last updated on April 7, 2020
Stones used: NO LAB GROWN - NO LAB HEATED - NO DYES - NO WAX
Metals: FINE - in quality gauge - not thin or sharp.

Thank you very much for visiting this shop, Until Etsy, joining the
Internet world was a daunting goal. I am artistic but Internet
"challenged" !!

I UNDERSTAND the inherent problem of buying on line: that you
have not touched or tried on or seen your purchases in the natural
light of your home. The minds behind this shop have been
influenced by generations of art enthusiasts so we have faced this
situation ourselves.

Therefore, we offer 5 Days for you to decide to keep an item, to be
sure it "fits" and looks great ... that you love the earrings on or the
vase on your table etc.

"Lay-Away" AVAILABLE.... PLEASE ASK ME (CONVO me).

Handle with care, in case you do decide to return your purchase.
Contact us with ANY questions and comments.

AND FINALLY: PLEASE leave a REVIEW...no matter what!

I look forward to hearing from you.
Now that we are @Etsy.com it can only be fun for all of us. If you like
(or don't like) our taste, our descriptions even our prices!..let us know.
Anything constructive is very welcome. Meanwhile, enjoy browsing
and "click to "Favorite" us as that makes it easier to find again that
super item you saw here today! And it makes us feel good to know
that you like something in our shop!

SAVE : paperwork for proof it was mailed.

Additional policies and FAQs
STUDIO CLD is a Registered name and the LOGO also...since 1985.

Carl Lewis Druckman was GIA-GG was degree'd in Colored Stones and with the naked eye could identify Russian Diamonds. At the time he took the GIA Diamond course no information could be taken into the exam. Today, students may have the "formulas"with them.
His Stones are not radiated, not dyed nor enhanced: ALL NATURAL.
They have been "vetted" by other Gemologists, fine USA cutters / faceters and stone dealers and purchased by
some of them including a gem lab for teaching and investment purposes.

I have very complete detailed records of all stones purchased and, in the case of diamonds, the grade etc.
My records go back to the mid 1980's!

No one nor any entity has complained about or returned a design.
In one case, because the Brooch was dropped, we found a
replacement stone material. A Lapidary made an extra-ordinary repair. We charged only the cost and the shipping. But that was several years ago...before Etsy!

STUDIO CLD is trustworthy and highly respected. Check the website www.carllewisdruckman.org. Carl's designs are still, 24 years after he died, requested by Jewelry Historians and Art Museums for exhibits.
Feel free to ask me for details. At this writing I have recently updated the Public ( not on Etsy) Website: www.carllewisdruckman.org...a few recent happenings are not there yet.
