Hi Casey, on June 30, 1990 we visited your shop in Skagway. We had been looking for unique rings for our upcoming wedding and were delighted to find you at that time in our lives. My ring was custom designed,a variation of my husband's. You, I believe were once a crane operator ?? so both you and my husband shared that in common. With your name engraved on the inside of our rings, I have been asked, if Casey was my husband's name. LOL
We absolutely loved and cherished our rings all these years. It brings such joy to wear. I recently was trying to find the name of your shop online, as I had forgotten, but recently found our bill of sale from 1990. I am delighted to have the opportunity to view your website,to see the beautiful creations of you and Marcia and to know that you are still creating.
A short story on my husband's ring: It was lost in late summer,1994. We had given up hope of ever finding it again. Unbeknown to us, it had fallen onto the floor of our truck camper. In February, during a winter blizzard, our camper was blown out of the back of our pickup truck into a roadside ditch in northern Newfoundland. The floor of the camper was later removed and disposed off. The truck box remained empty all winter except for bags of sand for ballast and snow from continuous snow falls over the winter. In late spring - end of May 1994, my husband and a friend were leaning on the truck, having a chat, when our friend remarked: "What's that shiny thing in the pan of the truck?" On investigation, believe it or not....there it was .....the gold nugget wedding ring crafted by none other than you, Casey. It was just as shiny as new, none the worse for wear and tear. It had survived the camper incident, the removal of the camper floor from the truck. It had overwintered, cozied up in sand from a broken sand bag, resting against the wheel well. How it managed to land there, and to be found some 9 months later is remarkable. I can only think that it was meant to be found and it also speaks to the weight of the gold nugget ring and it's workmanship which think kept it there in place till found. My husband passed away in 2008. He loved to tell the story of us finding you and our wedding rings and especially loved to tell the remarkable story of his lost/found ring. I wear his ring from time to time and smile every time I put it on. It brings back good memories. I hope that someday I will be able to have you craft a piece for me that will be a special piece of memory in his name, "Martin". Thanks for the wonderful memories your two rings have given us and continue to give me each day.

I grew up in Juneau. I'm sure I've been to the store in Skagway. Now I'm just across the river from you in Wisconsin. Will have to try and find you in Decorah.

Your store was an awesome experience...even in the 84 degree weather. Bought a nugget as a gift for myself to remember. Will be back to visit. Where can I get a glass vial for my nugget?

I loved the Owen Walker Sterling Silver Rings you had in your store. I would love to see more of them on your web site. It would make my decision to buy easier. Great store in Skagway!

Hi Casey!

I was just feeling a little homesick so I thought I'd check out some Skagway websites. Your work is still as beautiful as I remember it. Hope you are doing well!

Best Regards,

I have lived in Europe and have seen many beautiful wood carvings, I would put this art as equally breathe taking.

Your jewelry is the best by far of all that we saw in Alaska. My husband just loves his nugget ring and is the envy of all his friends. Yours is the most trustworthy shop we had found in all our shopping. We have sent your website address to many friends.

I was in your shop in July of 2009, was mesmorized (sp?) by Marcia Cook's jewelry and purchased the Gothic Swirl Ring - that was very out of the ordinary for midwest travelers on a tight budget. It still takes my breath away and I cannot tell you how many people have grabbed my hand for a better look. Your website is lovely but your shop is better, I will always remember your patience, your genuine friendliness and the lack of pressure to purchase. Thanks again for the lasting memory.

Though we are on opposite ends of the country, I like to consider you all my premier jeweler. Lory & I hope to be visiting you again next summer (2011). Until then, we will continue our long distance relationship.

I bought my wife a nice gold nugget and diamond while visiting the area. I really like the older gentlemans name slips my thoughts,but he was very generous and very nice to talk to. We were there 3 years ago. Just looking back though some of the stuff we did there, and the best part was watching him make stuff. Thanks again for all you do.

The replacement bear/mountain scene ring that my wife purchased from you for my 60th birthday, is quite a conversation piece where-ever we travel to in the world. Thanks for a ring that has taken me years to find.
