Larry Stearns was born and raised in northwestern South Dakota and has recently retired to the Black Hills. He has always enjoyed working with his hands and was inspired by his brother to start turning pens ten years ago.

A dyed-in-the-wool Midwesterner from Ohio, Sylvia began creating jewelry late in life as a third career. She began intensely studying jewelry-making techniques about fifteen years ago at local classes in California. Her studies continued at the Revere Academy in San Francisco, followed by a one-year apprenticeship with a classic goldsmith in Santa Cruz, California. During this time, she exhibited and sold her work at several galleries on the Monterey Peninsula.
