John Glossa is a craftsman and designer.
Fabricating distinctive jewelry designs in silver, gold and fine gem materials.
It’s amazing! Nearly 35 years have flown-by since I attended GIA in California to become a Graduate Gemologist and before that a Bachelors Degree of Geology in Colorado.
I have been creating jewelry for over 30 years, and as long as I can remember I have had a keenness for rocks and gems. I will say after completing my Graduate Gemologist studies at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA 1986) my appreciation for quality diamonds and gemstones certainly was broadened . Having the opportunity to have traveled to a variety of jewelry trade shows such as the mid-winter highlight in Tucson AZ I became aware of all the levels the jewelry business can and does function.
I am originally from Colorado where I worked as a custom jeweler near Aspen & Vail. I have taught jewelry classes in Colorado, Idaho, and in Oregon. Currently I reside in Dillon, Montana.
Making quality handmade jewelry shall continue to be a goal and desire. Years of experience, artistic creativity and interest in the great outdoors result in beautifully hand crafted jewelry. A theme in my work in recent years has been a popular design motif of stylized Barbed Wire design,
~ JEWELRY PRICING* & AVAILABILITY ~ Each jewelry item is individually tailored to the clients specifications, such as: metal type, size and quality of gemstones. This allows a buyer to order custom jewelry to fit their personal budget. Prices* shown on the web site are estimates and should be used as a guideline. Since each item will be custom made to your desires, currently it may take around 3 – 4 weeks to complete each jewelry order.
