Summer Phillips started her career in the jewelry world shortly after high school in Dallas, Texas, 1974. Summer initially worked with silver and various semi-precious stones. She traveled throughout Canada and the western United States picking up skills along the way. After returning to the Dallas area she began working with gold and diamonds, apprenticing with local master goldsmiths. Her passion for working in gold, platinum and precious stones gradually took over. In 1986 Summer opened her own studio creating custom, “one of a kind”, jewelry for many clients and leading high end stores including Tiffany’s. She also attained her diamond grading degree from the Gemological Institute of America.

In the summer of 1997, Summer and her husband Chris Pierce, a certified Arborist, moved to Pagosa Springs, CO to fulfill their life time dream of living in the mountains. Summer’s dedication to her art has blossomed here and her devotion to her customer’s satisfaction is widely known.
