You have your date, made dinner reservations, now there is just one last item to prepare for the perfect Valentine’s day…the perfect gift! Luckily we have you covered: jewelry, tools, and gift certificates for classes…we have great ideas no matter what your sweetie loves.
Rings make a wonderful gift and we have a wide selection from traditional bands to one of a kind designs. How do you figure out a ring size for a gift without asking and spoiling the surprise? If you can sneak and get one of your sweeties rings trace both the inside and outside diameter of the ring on a piece of paper. Bring the ring tracing with you when you shop and we can help you figure out the size.
But if rings aren’t what you are looking for we have a wide selection of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings too!
But what if your sweetie isn’t as interested in getting jewelry as much as making jewelry? We offer beginner and intermediate jewelry classes such as our popular Beginning Intro: Rings and Stacking Rings With Gemstones classes. Our next Beginning Intro Rings class will be coming up in spring quarter, May 14-15, but we still have space available in our Stacking Rings with Gemstones class on March 26.

But why should you try and shop local this holiday season? Here are just a few reasons why:
Whether with us or another small business in your community we hope you give shopping small local businesses a try this holiday season.
Repoussé – /rəˌpo͞oˈsā/: A metalworking technique where metal is shaped or ornamented by hammering onto the reverse side creating a low relief.
Chasing – /CHās,ing/: Opposite to repoussé, chasing hammers on the front of the pieced and is used in conjunction to create a finished piece.
Metalsmiths have been using chasing and repoussé to adorn metal since antiquity. The Greeks in 3rd century BC used it to create elaborate scenes on armor and shields and 2nd century Hellenic earrings.
The technique is still widely used today both on functional items such as water vessels in India, sculpture, and jewelry worldwide.
