Gleaming gold, sparkly silver, and radiant rubies, San Diego is full of little gems, especially so in this little shop in the heart of the city of La Mesa. Golden Artistry Jewlery Design is a small shop founded by Terry Whyte, a man who loves what he does and shows in his work. A master goldsmith, Terry designs, manufactures, and sells custom jewelry that are each their own one of a kind piece. The long time surfer previously lived in Honolulu before moving to San Diego, every piece Terry crafts has a name inspired by his oceanic muse.
Over time, Terry has perfected his own formula for white gold, in conjunction with gems cut himself, he produces some of the most unique and carefully crafted pieces in San Diego. Part of Terry's motivation that has kept his business running for over twenty seven years is his absolutely adoration for what he does and the fact that he already passes on his skills and experiences to our youth. Terry has several students who come to the shop and learn how to make jewelry, be creative, and understand how a business works. The time students spend at the shop can be used as credits toward their education, but the real experience and knowledge that Terry teaches may prove to be even more precious toward their futures.
Terry's wave of inspiration continues as he already has a set of ocean inspired wedding bands planned for the future. So if you ever wanted to have a piece of jewelry that absolutely will be one of a kind, the next you are in the city of La Mesa, give Golden Artistry Jewelry Design a visit. Aloha!
