You will be assured of quality in every piece of Augie’s collection as she is a graduate gemologist of 32 years and a silversmith as well. After retiring, she combined her background in art, her love of gems and minerals and her incredible creativity to build a fabulous business as a jewelry designer.

When visiting The Silver Bear shoppe, you will be treated to a gathering of stunning gemstone Jewelry, beautiful Earrings, magnificent Bracelets and a specialized collection of artisan Intarsia Necklaces

Intarsia, sometimes known as Florentine Mosaic, is an art form dating back to the 1300's or earlier. The technique involves inlaying gemstones into other gemstones, wood or metal to create stunning jewelry pieces.

At The Silver Bear, everyone is sure to find the perfect jewelry design to compliment their wardrobe and Augie also welcomes custom requests.
