Meet Our Team
Dwaine has owned the store since he opened in 1974. Dwaine takes a lot of time with each customer to insure that he is able to provide them with pieces of jewelry which truly “Dare to be Different”. Dwaine’s style can most be described as geometrically sleek and sophisticated. He especially loves collecting unique pearls and working them into his designs.
Elizabeth has worked at Goldsmith Silversmith since 2011. She loves to design one of a kind jewelry with our clients. She has six children, three cats, one dog, and one husband, who also happens to be our jeweler!
Grace began working at Goldsmith Silversmith in October of 2019. As a sales person Grace loves to help customers find the perfect missing unique touch from their wardrobe, or find ways to repurpose old jewelry.
Danielle has worked at Goldsmith Silversmith for over 10 years. She started walking to the store after school as a kid to visit her dad (Dwaine), and started helping out at the store. Today she handles many of our operations, repairs, and design work. When she's not working, she's most likely at her pottery wheel or camping.
Jim is our bench jeweler and has worked with Dwaine for over 30 years. He studied at Northwest Missouri State with an emphasis in fine arts and has two sons. When he's not at the bench, Jim loves bicycle touring with his wife, Elizabeth.
Becca started working at Goldsmith Silversmith in January of 2019. She is a painter and mixed media artist who has enjoyed learning about jewelry-making and developing her design skills. "My absolute favorite thing about working at the Goldsmith is helping our clients transform their old jewlery into new one-of-a-kind pieces they love."
Copper was likely our most well-known employee. He passed in October of his 22nd year with us, Copper spent his days greeting customers, napping, and getting lots of ear scratches and belly rubs. Copper's favorite things included yoghurt, flowers, snickerdoodle cookies, and whipped cream. He was the best companion anyone could ask for, and will be missed by all. RIP
