Paul FinchWelcome to Cory Smith Studios. I've been designing custom jewelry since 1971 and have operated my current 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.
