Trained in a four year apprenticeship under the tutelage of Master Jeweler Bruce Holmgrain. I have been the owner, designer of Da Gama Designs ( formerly C&L Lapidary) for twenty five years. I run a small trade shop for Hartman Jewelers and The Jewelry Box. In my studio in the Blue Ridge of Virginia, I design and construct contemporary, one of a kind jewelry in 18K and Platinum. My pieces are on conisgnment in several stores, and I do a few upscale craft/art fairs as well.
