A little history trivia. 
I worked as a jeweler for several Jewelry stores in the 1980’s
The economy was in a slump, and eventually one by one, they all went out of business. 
I worked on and off in construction, on a sheep farm, and even sold Ads for the Gonzales Weekly. 
At one point, I got a small contract to set diamonds for a manufacturer. I bought some basic jewelry manufacturing tools, and set up a Jewelry workbench in a corner of this small metal building on my Father in Laws property. The job didn’t pay much, and didn’t last long, but it planted the seed of owning my own Jewelry store.  After the last jewelry store went out of business, my parents loaned us some money to open my store. There were plenty lean years, with both of us working multiple jobs, but we pressed on. 
Just a little Sunday evening story of our very humble beginnings. Most people have no idea the long road Donna and I had to get to the Layne’s Jewelry and Design you know today.
