Paul FinchWelcome to Cory Smith Studios. I've been designing custom jewelry since 1971 and have operated my studio overlooking the Mississippi River in Genoa, WI since 1988. My work as a designer and GIA (Gemological Institute of America) gemologist incorporates:

  • Heirloom-quality custom designs and remounts
  • Gem faceting, carving, and gem identification/appraisals
  • Hand engraving on yellow gold, white gold, and platinum bands and mountings

I design custom jewelry for clients regionally, as well as throughout the United States. Jewelry, to me, is not about the money; it's about the art.
