Wayne began working in his family's wholesale jewelry manufacturer business in 1974. Fourteen years later he went to work in a full retail store and began to design and hand make one of a kind pieces. Making items with a client's likes and desires is the niche he enjoys. Wayne exceeds expectations when consulting with a client that has inherited items that may not suit their taste or style by remaking those stones into an item they can love and proudly wear. Bridal jewelry is very important as Wayne specializes in custom wedding bands to fit and match. Doing what he loves after 47 years truly is a joy.
