In 1927 my grandfather began making jewelry and working for model factories in St. Louis, Missouri. He spent his entire career as a jeweler, working for numerous companies such as Black Hills Gold in South Dakota and Ford Motor Co., all while raising eleven children. My father followed in his footsteps with a degree in gemology, eventually opening shops in downtown LA and Lake Forest, CA. Fast forward to today, and here I am - a third generation jeweler. With guidance from my 80 year old father, and inspiration drawn from all over the world, I am proud to present to you Skydog Jewelry.
My story is a bit different from that of my father and grandfather. I didn't always know my purpose. Previous passions include classical violin and screen printing. I also completed a degree in marketing in 2014 at Cal State Fullerton, but realized while I was in school that I was also interested in jewelry. That interest led to my father gifting me some old tools he had, and the rest is history. With a resurgence in hand made quality goods, I take great pride in crafting each piece you see by hand in beautiful Los Angeles, California. From raw materials and carefully sourced stones, everything is hand crafted by me.

I hope you enjoy what you see here. Should you have any questions or requests, please don't hesitate to contact me!
