Sturgeons Bay, WI 54235
Greg and I have been designing jewelry locally for 30 years. We are both Wisconsin natives: Greg is from Wausau and my family is from Sturgeon Bay. Greg and I met while attending UW-Stout, both studying the arts. We married and settled in Sturgeon Bay, where our passion for creating fine jewelry began. The original Gold and Silver Creations was established in 1981 in Sturgeon Bay. Our business philosophy was simple: use the finest diamonds and gemstones, create unique, classic and contemporary jewelry designs and treat our customers as family. Housed in a restored late 1800's Victorian home, we were the first boutique to open in the historic Jefferson Street district in Sturgeon Bay. In 2006, we sold our business to focus on new designs and manufacturing techniques. Though semi-retirement was enjoyable, we were missing something. After a few years away from the store setting, we both missed the direct contact we had with our customers, whom we considered friends as well. In early spring of 2010 the new concept of Samara Jewelry Designs was born. Greg and I both hope you enjoy our newest gallery venture and we look forward to showing you what new and exciting directions we have taken in our jewelry designs.
