Chris Kumsetaddle is the head jeweler. Every job and every repair goes to his desk. At that point he discusses with the jewelers what they want to do and assigns each one jobs for the week.
There are times we have repeat customers come in and specifically ask for a certain jeweler. For example Byron McCurtain is a master when it comes to working on silver and getting a high polish on jewelry. He has studied Turquoise for years and has a large selection of stones for the customer to choose from. He has made a custom squash blossom and many rings with his own design and flare. You can find a lot of his pieces on the internet just type his name in. Bo Fain is another jeweler that has been making jewelry for over 30 yrs and has a style of his own with an organic flare to his style.
I would love to give a tour of our facility any time and introduce you to our jewelers. It is a neat tour and it helps you understand the jewelery making process. Again, thanks Lawton for all the responses and all the work you have given us.
