Roberts Manufacturing Jeweler Inc. was founded by Linda and James Roberts in 1982. Their specialty is orchid jewelry, with Russian painted orchids, silver and gold handcast, enameled silver pieces, and mammoth ivory carvings. In addition, Linda produces plique a jour and other unique pieces.
Sadly, James died in 2010; however, Linda is continuing the tradition of orchid jewelry and unique collector's pieces.
