THE STORY CONTINUES
Brooke Stone, the artist and jewelry designer, began producing her catalog of animal totem jewelry outside of Eugene Oregon in the late 1980’s. Shane Bloodworth and David Bobb, owners of American Trails Gallery in Ashland Oregon, were the first art gallery to carry her work in 1991. Having a gallery with a Native American theme and being lovers of nature and the abundant wildlife residing in the Pacific Northwest, we were avid fans of Brooke’s designs and had many collectors of her art share our interest.
In 2012 Brooke started slowing down her production on the way to full retirement. When we heard she was ready to retire we contacted her and arranged to acquire all her original molds and designs so we could carefully continue to offer her unique vision to the world.
We have teamed up with Michael and Sons Jewelers in Reno Nevada to manufacture Brooke’s designs using her original molds to the same exacting level of hand done quality and detail Brooke had done for all those years. We are excited to be able to keep her inspirational work going forward into the future.
