Welcome to our jewelry gallery! We truly want to thank all of our friends, clients, family and the community for the warm reception we have received for our newest gallery venture. We are excited to share with you what we have designed in the past several years. We think it is our best work yet! Come visit us in the beautiful historic downtown district of Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
A little about us!
Greg and I have been designing jewelry locally for 35 years - whew! We are both Wisconsin natives: Greg is from Wausau and my family is from Sturgeon Bay. Greg and I met while attending UW-Stout, both studying the arts. We married and settled in Sturgeon Bay, where our passion for creating fine jewelry began. The original Gold and Silver Creations was established in 1981 in Sturgeon Bay.
Our business philosophy was simple: use the finest diamonds and gemstones, create unique, classic and contemporary jewelry designs and treat our customers as family.
Housed in a restored late 1800’s Victorian home, we were the first boutique to open in the historic Jefferson Street district in Sturgeon Bay.
In 2006, we sold our business to focus on new designs and manufacturing techniques. Though semi-retirement was enjoyable, we were missing something.
After a few years away from the store setting, we both missed the direct contact we had with our customers, whom we considered friends as well.
In early spring of 2010 the new concept of Samara Jewelry Designs was born. Greg and I both hope you enjoy our newest gallery venture and we look forward to showing you what new and exciting directions we have taken in our jewelry designs.
See you soon!
Samara and Greg
