Master Jeweler – Michael Gonnering

Michael became interested in art at an early age. He was recognized for his talents in drawing and modeling clay early on in kindergarden. All through his education his passion was in creating. He graduated the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Fine Art in 1977.

Michael first came on board at Towne Jewelers in 1986. He is a true artisan of jewelry design. All his custom designs start with Michael’s incredible skill set of hand drawing a life size image of each unique design. He then hand carves the wax model and does all his own finish work. It is this rare specialty of one person creating your custom jewelry design that continues to exceed expectations all the time.
