Thanks to all of my loyal customers for the last 22 years. I am retiring from a storefront in mid-January 2013. Keep watching this space for many special offers and closeouts.I would like to thank all of my customers and friends for your many years of support and trust in our business. I have decided to change my modus operandi, in that I am closing my shared space within IOWA ARTISANS GALLERY. I am doing this in order to have more time to travel and to return more fully to my original roots and heart: that is, to focus more fully on the gem business. I plan to spend more time in prospecting for, mining, and cutting rough gem materials and to utilize the stones I have acquired over a lifetime. Over the next two months I will be offering specials on many pieces in stock, as well as items from my personal collection for sale.
I plan to close in mid-January 2013. Until that time, I will be available to make that special creation you may have in mind. After that time, I may still take a few special requests. I will update under the NEWS section to let you know of new projects as they emerge, and new finds and developments in the gem field. If you wish to receive emails from this site, please leave your email address at the mailing list, and I will include you. I will keep you up on developments in the trade. I would like to keep in touch with old friends. Thanks again for the pleasure of knowing and serving you, and please stay in touch.
