If you have ever been in our store and spoken with me about custom jewelry, the name Jere Keyes might have entered the conversation. Jere is an integral part of the Chimera team. He works with me on computer design projects - he also does almost all of our casting work. We would love to have him move into our building, but for the time being he is happy with his set up in Grand Rapids (dang!).
We just got our hands on a picture of Jere hard at work. (Never seen him all spiffed up like this before - he cleans up well!)
In addition to his talents as a jeweler, Jere is
is a GIA Graduate Gemologist - which is why he is
pictured above with a microscope and other fancy tools.
The next three images are some more examples
of the work Jere can do. He is a third generation
jeweler and, I think you will agree, does some
lovely piece of jewelry just for you.
