Jim and Debbie Peirano
Jim Peirano is a local to the area since birth. He has lived in Pleasant Hill his entire life. He began creating jewelry in middle school, and sold his first piece of jewelry to one of his teachers! Throughout high school he attended craft fairs to sell his creations. Always a jeweler, he was also a Silversmith for Munson's Plating in Berkeley, Ca.; a very cool piece of history he was honored to work on, was a bowl from Paul Revere! He also taught Jewelry Making/Lost Wax Casting at Pleasant Hill Adult Education, and recently for under privileged children at the Crucible. A family man, fisherman, and jeweler.
Debbie, his wife and also native of Pleasant Hill has recently retired from being a Registered Nurse and now on occasion fills in for Valerie when she needs a little break!
Fun fact...Jim and Debbie were high school sweethearts!
Valerie is also a local to Pleasant Hill, Ca and Jim's youngest daughter. As a young girl she would go upstairs and watch her dad work on jewelry and ask a million questions! As she grew older teaching was what she wanted to do and she decided to pursue an education in English and then substitute teach. She taught for the Antioch Unified School District for eight years, until the opportunity to open a store with her dad (like they had always talked about) arose. When the opportunity came about, Valerie started her journey on becoming a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate Gemologist which she completed in 2019.
She is also the creator and author of Single and Selling Bridal, a jewelry blog!
