It seems UNBELIEVABLE, but it's true....we just completed ONE FULL YEAR at the wonderful new location in Lee's Summit. It has been really fast-moving, and full of happy surprises! Many rewarding relationships have begun, as new clients are coming in to be served. They join the long-time friends that we have been privileged to know these past 15-plus years. The gracious and warm reception into the Lee's Summit community is deeply appreciated. 

In the previous post, we mentioned that there were some new and exciting changes afoot --

In the very near future, we will be introducing some of the more unique (even one-of-a-kind) pieces that are from our own designs and production. The "first runs" of these design ideas and concepts have been received with enthusiastic interest. It is our goal to have many of these new pieces in stock for viewing beginning later this month, and extending into the first of October. If there is a design idea that you would like to see "brought to life", let us know. 

In closing, we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for an ESPECIALLY great first year in Lee's Summit. The BEST is yet to come!  God bless!  Del, Julie, Joyce, Jon, Robin, and Lynne

Time for a (COOL) change....

Hi Friends!

In the weeks ahead, you will be seeing some very exciting CHANGES to our assortment of jewelry. For quite some time we have been pondering various possibilities, and lately we have been experimenting with some new processes. Many of you have told us over the years that the pieces that WE MAKE (or assemble/set) here IN-STORE MEAN MUCH MORE to you than any "designer" or "brand" of jewelry. We are listening!!  It is a DELIGHT to be the jewelers that provide unique and cherished treasures for you to enjoy. "As we speak", plans are being made to begin designing and producing some very lovely pieces, using various metals, gemstones, textures, and techniques. Some will be "one of a kind"! Just last week we completed a hand-forged bracelet which was set with a south-sea ornamental cultured pearl and diamonds. It was in the showcase two days! We realize that this is an "out of the sandbox" approach, and we LOVE IT!!! There is SO MUCH 'STUFF' out there, (jewelry and otherwise), and SO MUCH of it is poorly made.  NOTE--- We are not referring to TRULY CLASSIC FINE JEWELRY....WE LOVE THAT, BELIEVE IN IT, and WILL ALWAYS PROVIDE THAT STYLE OF JEWELRY. Solitaires, stud earrings, hoop earrings, tennis bracelets; yes indeed! What's more, the QUALITY and VALUE that we have always been known to provide will be infused into the NEW and EXCITING pieces that we are making here in the shop.  

So....be watching for some really FUN, GORGEOUS, ARTISTIC, and AFFORDABLE jewels to be shown here soon!  ......For now, though, gotta' get back to the shop!!  Hope to see you soon!  God bless, Del
