About Quenton Elliott Jr.

Some of my earliest memories are of my father at the bench. A master hand engraver, master watchmaker and inventor, I remember vividly remember, sitting on my dad’s shoulders and watching his hands as he worked. My mother possessed a keen artistic aesthetic as well, and together, they nurtured my passion for drawing and designing.

Throughout my school years, I worked part-time at my father’s business. My dad and other craftsmen taught me general jewelry repair and hand fabrication techniques. I also learned wax carving and modeling, precious metals casting, finishing and mold making for production work. This opened an entirely new creative world I was eager to explore. Following alongside my dad as he worked with vendors and gem dealers, I was introduced to the wonderful world of colored gemstones and the science of gemology.

After college, I attended the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) in California in 1976, and earned my Graduate Gemologist degree in residence.

My career has taken me through many areas and stages of gems and jewelry industries, to my current passion. I was constantly looking for inspiration, that one thing that would truly make me happy. I finally decided:

The traditional way is not for me.

That meant that after working in the industry for 40 years, I am returning to my first real passion:  designing and creating made-to-order custom jewelry, trophy jewelry, and all manner of unique original items. I am inspired by the odd, the exotic, and the wonderfully strange in our world. And designing jewelry with these motifs brings me the most joy and satisfaction. For those who are similarly inspired, I invite you to see how I interpret the beauty and strangeness of our world through design.
