Years of Experience
Actually, its more than 400 years of combined experience!
Green Lakes founder &
our original bench jeweler & designer,
Jim Tuttle, started Green Lake Jewelry Works in 1996, after more than a decade
perfecting his jewelry skills.
Jim is a "No Compromise" kind of guy, and knew that working directly with
to create Original one-of-a kind Designs, was the only way to go.
We believe that doing every step, from pencil sketch to final polish, in one place
is critical to making each piece perfect. That's why we design & manufacture
every one of our Original Designs right here in our Seattle Design Center.
Our dedication to
Custom & our focus on Original
Design, Artistry & Great Craftsmanship has led Green Lake Jewelry Works to over
16 years of uninterrupted growth.
We are proud that many tell us we are the
standard for Custom jewelry in America.
Matter of fact, we were voted "Coolest Store in America" for 2012 by the editors
of Instore Magazine...Now we're blushing!
Don't accept less than working with Amazing Artists & craftsmen in a collaborative
& Artistic atmosphere.
Custom Jewelry design is about working with people every day to create great
new styles, tailored to each individual.
Designing alone is too easy; The interaction
between Client and Artist creates a synergy & challenge that helps us create new
and innovative designs, and always satisfies the best. I am delighted every day
to see our work made better by the Artist / Client interplay."
