Making Fine Jewelry and Friends Since 1981

Our Designer

DSCF3401CJ Grad has always been creative. Her favorite class in high school was art, where she enjoyed drawing and painting. Her art teacher was so impressed with one of her paintings; she put it up for sale at and art fare. On the weekends she worked part time in a jewelry store soldering charms onto charm bracelets. She also studied and earned her hair dressers license.

After high school she began her career working as a hair dresser and occasionally at a jewelry store. But she wasn’t content with the type of work she was doing. It was boring and unimaginative. Her artistic spirit wanted to be let out of the box and be creative.

At 19 CJ Grad was focused and driven, she took all the money she had earned and she bought a jewelry store from a retiring jeweler. The jeweler stayed on for a short time and taught her the business. Caffray Jewellers was born.

Today CJ Grad is creating amazing original pieces of jewelry for her customer, not to mention a one of a kind for her high school art teacher.

Making fine jewelry and friends is what she does.
