Jeweler Mary Kay Kempker loves to create one-of-a-kind pieces.
She entered the jewelry business in 1980, apprenticing under several talented jewelers. She completed the GIA Diamond Course and opened her own trade shop in 1990. She’s been selling fine jewelry, buying unusual gems, restoring special pieces, and handcrafting unique creations ever since.
Mary is especially interested in creating custom designs. “I have a cad-cam program that allows me to create a ring with minute detail work,” she says. “I like to add stones in unusual places and do intricate metal millwork.
She is most inspired when working with people who have a particular dream that she can turn into a reality. “Jewelry truly brings joy into a person’s heart. It so rewarding to see the results, especially for special occasions or any time a memory is made.”
Mary is driven to work hard, be efficient and do her ultimate best. Being fair and honest with her customers gives her the fulfillment of seeing their delight and knowing they appreciate what she does.
“I want the people who bring their hopes and dreams to me to come back in the future,” Mary says. “I appreciate my customers, and I want to share their celebrations with my contribution of creating their dream.”
