i have been in the jewelry industry since the age of 14 when i took an apprentiship. i started my own jewelry business out of my mom basement when i was 16 designing jewelry for all her friends. after high school i went out to GIA in Santa Monica in 1992 were i earned my GG. after GIA i studied with the ISA in NY and Chicago, then i took my first "suit job" at Jewelry By Jose Grant (the puzzle man) in Stanford Connecticut appraising and designing jewelry for his clients. after about a year there i decided to move back to Michigan were i was from and took a position with a local jeweler for about four years. after my first son was born i decided this was enough of working for someone else and i opened my first "real" store front studio in Berkley Michigan. i was in that location for five years, then i moved to a bit larger location six blocks away and this is were i will be until the retirement home. i specialize in redesigning and restoration of jewelry (basicly we do all the work that know one else around here wants to do and we enjoy it). to see more of me and my studio goto mhgjewelry.com Matthew; mhgjewelry.com i dont know
