February 22, 2012
As you are aware I was looking for a unique piece of jewelry for my wife since our 5th wedding anniversary was quickly approaching. After seeing you during one of the Corvette events, you were kind enough to provide me with some renderings of what we spoke about in person. This portion was so much fun! Nothing like seeing the details we spoke about come alive on paper.
After receiving the rendering of what we spoke about, the next step was to spill the beans to my wife and let her know what I was up to. I wasn’t sure it would be as fun letting her in on the surprise but at the same time I realized she might have something totally different in mind. This allowed her to share her vision with you, obviously your patience with dealing directly with a husband and wife were much appreciated. She was able to convey what she was looking for with you and it was great to see everything come together once you made yet another rendering of her ideas. She also truly enjoyed the process which makes it that much more special.
The overall best part about this project was the day it arrived, which happened to be my daughter’s birthday. My wife ran into the room when I arrived home from work to showcase her new beautiful charm bracelet that was produced from her imagination into reality. She was ecstatic as was I. We’re thrilled with the piece of jewelry and look forward to passing it along for many generations to come.
If you ever need any recommendations, please don’t hesitate sending my referral along. I’m certain you’ll make their dreams come alive just as you did with us.
Thank you for making our 5th wedding anniversary so special.
Life is good…
At right, is Michele’s personalized white gold bracelet that she envisioned.
Thank you so much for creating this beautiful bracelet that I will always treasure! I love it — especially the meaning associated with each charm.
It was a pleasure working with you!
KIM’S GOLD DUST was contacted by the Grand Sport Registry committee to provide white gold Grand Sport ID bracelets for John “Hutch” Hutchinson and his wife, Patti, for their 10 years of tireless service to the Grand Sport Registry. The committee emphasized that the shape of the ID bracelet plate needed to closely match the Grand Sport bar as much as possible, paying particular attention to the curvature and roundness of the Grand Sport emblem. Also, another requirement was to match the font and coloring of the emblem. These bracelets also contained a personal engraved message for Hutch and Patti. The committee was extremely pleased with the results.
We shipped the bracelets to the committee and one of their members went the extra mile to build a gift box to display these bracelets when presented to Hutch and Patti. Check these out!
“After having seen the WONDERFUL job that KIM’S GOLD DUST did in creating the unique Grand Sport bracelets that members of the Grand Sport Registry commissioned as surprise thank you gifts for my wife, Patti, and I, I knew she was capable of almost anything we could dream up in the way of custom jewelry.
So as a very special Christmas present, I asked Kim to design a while gold necklace for Patti, based on the same design as was used for our Grand Sport bracelets. I was very specific in that the emblem had to have a slight curvature so it would lay nicely around her neck and I wanted the chain to exactly match that of the bracelets.
When I saw the finished product, delivered just in time for Christmas, as she promised, I knew it was something special. Words cannot express the sheer delight and wide-eyed surprise that Patti experienced when she opened the box on Christmas morning and saw the necklace for the first time. She was absolutely speechless (which is saying something for her!) and so happy with her gift that it kept me out of the dog house for at least a solid week!
Any Corvette enthusiast looking for something special for that extra special someone in their life could do no better than rely on KIM’S GOLD DUST. Thank you, Kim, for making my special someone’s holiday all the brighter!”

Another example given as a Christmas gift came from Jim Everse. His wife, Diane owns CarArtWork
(offers two- dimensional brushed metal Corvette collectibles). Jim wanted to surprise Diane with a pendant of the company logo. He asked us to add three diamonds evenly spaced at the bottom of the pendant. This piece turned out absolutely gorgeous! Take a look.
“Kim – I just wanted to let you know that I love my pendant! It was such a surprise. Jim was just like a kid with it – he had to give it to me first. Normally he saves my big present for last.
Thanks for helping him with it.”
