People come to us to design and craft their jewelry design ideas. This original pieces embody their most important life events and their most profound relationships.

That is why Margarette Elie invests the time to truly understand each customer, talking over a coffee at our studio in Yelm, WA, an hour outside Seattle, to understand the needs of every client. From the initial jewelry design idea, to the computer visualization, to the intricate process of hand crafting each piece, the person’s particular needs remain the focus of every step of the work. And in the end, each delighted customer has a piece of jewelry, worked from the finest materials and to the highest standards, which speaks personally and individually of their most precious moments.
