The Sunstone Store

 

BIO

My forty year plus journey in jewelry making started with a family rock hounding trip in northern California and wound through high school and college jewelry courses eventually leading to a goldsmiths apprenticeship in the late 1970's. I continued to work and study under master smiths both modern and old school in and around the San Francisco Bay Area until moving with my wife and family to Bend, Oregon in 1988. There we worked in a for various jewelry stores as employees and contractors until we decided to open our own custom jewelry store, Douglas Jewelry Design, in 2001. In 2017 we re-branded as The Sunstone Store to more fully commit to the unique beauty of Oregon's Official State Gem.

 

WHY OREGON SUNSTONE?

In all my years of jewelry making, handling and setting thousands of gems, I have found nothing that compares to Oregon Sunstone for its varied beauty and versatility. I don't believe there is another gem anywhere in the world that can produce the range of colors from a single source like Oregon Sunstone does. It is also an incredibly versatile gem lending itself well to everything from traditional faceting to free form carving. I feel like my work now is as much about revealing beauty as it is about creating it.
