    Dixie Schallenberger is the artistic genius behind High Country Designs. High Country Designs is located in the Ruby Valley, near the beautiful mountains of Southwestern Montana. The breath-taking valley offers Dixie plenty of inspiration for her jewelry as well as plenty of wildflowers. Dixie Schallenberger started High Country Designs as nothing more than a hobby. However, in 1978, her hobby transformed into a beautiful business. Now Dixie hand-slices, and hand-presses all of her beautiful antler jewelry so you can have your own piece of Montana wherever you are!

      Sam Ferraro has been creating jewelry by hand since 1971. After spending his post-college years in the mining industry, his love for precious stones attracted him to the world of custom jewelry. A man of the west his entire life, Ferraro has been in Bozeman, Montana ever since. 

     "I was drawn to the area,” he says fondly. “It’s a great place to live.”

     His work has been highly influenced by Native American culture, Western themes and Montana wildlife.
