The Golden Globes Press Gifting

In both 2014 and 2015, our shop participated in the press gifting at the GBK Golden Globes Gift Lounge in Hollywood, California. We provided a total of ten individual items that we designed specifically for this function.  The items were presented at the gift lounge to those members of the press and media who were invited to the event.

This necklace was the piece we "gifted" in 2014. We received recognition by several members of the press who received our product. This item is available for sale in our Etsy Shop. 

This necklace was gifted to the press and media at the 2015 Golden Globes. This too is available for purchase in our shop.


In 2007 we were honored to become members of the Jewelry on Etsy team on the ETSY website.
A world wide group of jewelry artisans coming together to bring you gorgeous hand crafted, custom, and one of a kind designs.

Jewelry on Etsy Team

This group is a team of skilled artisans who help to promote the other members' shops and offer suggestions and support as they go about their business of selling handcrafted jewelry designs on ETSY. 

Check out the team blog for lots of helpful information about jewelry making, along with a look at the beautiful designs created by this group.


We are a proud member of The Artisan Group, a marketing organization that introduces the products of it's members to Hollywood by participating in various gifting lounges and opportunities throughout the year. Below is a description of the group's purpose. We have had our earrings successfully chosen to be worn on an episode of The Vampire Diaries in May 2014. We have also gifted the press and media at the 2014 and 2015 Golden Globes in California and received some wonderful acknowledgements from members of the press. 
The Artisan Group® is a premiere entertainment marketing organization, and we are on a mission to introduce Hollywood to the best of the handcrafted movement.
We do it by providing owners of artisan businesses the chance to introduce their products to celebrities, industry leaders, VIPs, and members of the press through participation in celebrity gift lounges such as those honoring The Academy Awards*, The Golden Globes* and The Primetime Emmys*. Because The Artisan Group takes a collaborative approach to participation in these lounges, a marketing opportunity that would be prohibitively expensive for most small companies becomes surprisingly affordable.
Members of The Artisan Group showcase an array of handcrafted products, including jewelry; bath and spa products; designer stationery and paper goods; crocheted accessories; clutches, purses and totes; hand-poured candles; hand-bound books and journals; illustrations and paintings; hand-dyed scarves; fine art photography; hair accessories; and pet accessories and toys.
The Artisan Group also offers members guidance in sales, marketing, social media and public relations. For nearly four years, our experienced event representatives have acted as spokespersons and ambassadors for countless artists at Hollywood's top gift lounges, with fantastic results. Because they know and trust us, most celebrities will pose for a professional photo with our artisans’ products.
Participation in The Artisan Group is by invitation only. The result is an exclusive, close-knit community of talented artisans who exhibit excellence of product (appropriate size-wise for gifting), great product photography, impressive branding and online presence on social media, and an established online sales record.

Our Story

While hiking in the Adirondack Mountains of New York several years ago, Bill and I discovered our first piece of garnet. Thus, the birth of JemsbyJB&Company (Judy and Bill), We have since worked with many other semi-precious gemstones and have brought some of our stones from their raw state to the beautiful finished pieces that we now offer for sale.

We try to create pieces that will appeal to all ages and fashion trends. I am considered the creative genius behind this operation and Bill is "manufacturing". We still enjoy our rides to the mountains where we continue to find treasures that inspire our creations. It's a beautiful world out there and there are lots of things to see and investigate.

We are located a stone's throw away from the Herkimer Diamond Mines and have gone there on many occasions to mine for those. We have also traveled to the mountains in North Carolina to mine for rubies and emeralds. Bill did find a ruby which he had set in a lovely necklace for me. Lucky girl!!

We love to create unique, one of a kind designs. We also welcome requests for special occasions. Check out our shop for some of our jewelry. It is for sale at the following website.....
