After a 20 year career in the Air Force Dan decided he wanted to do something creative. He learned stonecutting and took classes on different techniques in making jewelry For 10 years he sold his work in Arts and crafts shows all over the U.S. developing his skills and getting ideas on what people liked and wanted. Then in 1986, Dan opened The Perfect Setting in South Haven.
Shortly after, his daughter Tracey joined in his endeavor. She learned the craft from her father and offers creative ideas and beadwork to the mix. They have enjoyed working together running The Perfect Setting for 27 years. As a team they can design and create almost any special piece of jewelry that you desire. No mass production, each piece is one of a kind! We work with many beautiful hand-cut stones from all over the world. But our jewelry and friendly knowledgeable staff can only be found at The Perfect Setting!
As each of Dan's creations is a one of a kind, not every piece of jewelry he makes will be featured on the website; so feel free to contact us about any particular piece or stone that interests you! This site is designed to be a gallery showcasing some of his work, so don't hesitate to contact us! We are happy to send you photos and information specific to your personalized interests and desires.
