Our founder, the renowned jeweler Kathleen Dughi, was trained in Europe and well known for her original design sense and impeccable craftsmanship. In May 2007, she lost her five year battle with breast cancer, but she never lost her fierce passion for her work, and was designing up until the last day of her life. Kathleen wanted to be sure that her passion and dedication to her work would live on. Today, the company continues under the ownership of Kathleen's son, Oliver. We invite you to visit our inviting studio workshop in downtown Mill Valley where we produce Kathleen's original designs as well as new one-of-a-kind and custom jewels inspired by her vision.
