Doug Kile

Jeweler

My name is Doug. After 30 plus years in the retail business, my wife and I moved to Green Valley, Arizona. We returned to our Michiana roots in 2009. My wife is from Niles, Michigan and I, South Bend, Indiana.

I have always enjoyed working with my hands and while in Arizona, I started doing clay work, however, I was introduced to Silversmithing in 2001. I truly enjoy the creativity and challenges this profession entails. My pieces are custom or original one of a kind, keeping in mind that when a project is handmade no two are alike.

I also make the cabochons from rough stone that you will see in my signed pieces. A number of my pieces are inlaid. I use 925 sterling silver and 999 fine silver. Above all, I have learned the patience and respect that artist apply to their medium.
