A message from Mike,


I started my career in the sterling silver jewelry business in June of 1993. Before the year was out I was buying silver in Mexico by the suitcase full, so heavy it took 2 people to hoist the case into the overhead storage. At that time the market price was $6.00 an ounce for silver. It is not $28.00 an ounce.

My customer base was small retail stores in the Midwest. In fact one of my biggest customers was Bonnie Kelly and Teresa Walsh, now Silpada Designs. I would bring a small shipment of jewelry designed by myself and some very talented artisans.  My first stop was always to see Bonnie & Teresa. It is exciting that they have done so well...Cheers to them. 

Later it was suggested that I build a web site and sell sterling silver jewelry online to the public and there is really where  it all began. Since then I have traveled  to several countries that specialize in quality sterling silver jewelry, mostly all handmade.

Late one December night  after losing a dear friend and feeling sorry for myself, I was perusing the web for domain names for my online business which was only still a vision at that time. I typed in and it was available! At 2AM I was now the proud owner of the best domain name in the silver jewelry business. Now what's next? You will have to watch the progress and join the adventure with us on where we feature tiffany inspired designs, the Bali collection and other high quality silver. 

I want to thank the people who have believed in my dream and the domain name  Guillermo, Deni, Memo, Noa, Alex, Hugo, Victor, Mike, Rocco, John,  Shea, Kevin, Brad, Laura, Savannah, Erin and many others!

I always try to answer or return phone calls and emails. You can reach me at or 877-839-2119.
