How did the business start?

“We started out in a small warehouse/office space about 19 years ago and have primarily grown our business through gift markets like Nutcracker and through online sales,” owner Christie Gunter wrote to KPRC. “About 4 1/2 years ago we decided to open a boutique with a design room where our customers could bring in their old china and let us turn it into one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry. Now we host parties called ‘Wine and Design’ where groups can come in using their own china or choose from our vast selection and we will help them design their own piece of jewelry while enjoying the company of their friends, family or colleagues.”
