James Hutchings

We are a small jewelry fabricator and repair boutique out of Foresthill, California. We design and handcraft pieces of jewelry that uniquely feature your favorite or personal materials. Many of our pieces feature gold that we extracted from our private mining claim. Other pieces include rare and desirable mineral specimens from around the world.

We attend events in the Sacramento region to not only provide our fine services, but also to promote an appreciation for the region’s greatest treasures and resources:  gold and minerals

Jim Hutchings opened the business as a natural progression of his passion in gold prospecting and rockhounding. He thoroughly enjoys teaching others about rocks, minerals, geology, and gold prospecting, and the business connects customers to a knowledgeable and skilled artisan.

Jim lives in Foresthill, California with his wife, Cathy. They have five children and six grandchildren who share his enthusiasm for rocks and adventure. Jim’s other interests include amateur radio and healthy discussions on public safety, emergency preparedness, and current affairs.
