KEVIN AND JOANNE DOWDY HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH OPAL SINCE 1983. THEIR ADVENTURE STARTED WHEN THEY MET AN OPAL MINER IN THE TINY OUTBACK TOWN OF QUILPIE, QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA. AFTER SEEING THE BEAUTIFUL GEMS THE MINER DISPLAYED, KEVIN AND JOANNE EACH CAUGHT WHAT IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS "OPAL FEVER." IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE THEY BOUGHT INTEREST IN AN OPAL MINE AND SET UP SHOP AS OPAL CUTTERS. 

NOW RESIDING IN TUCSON, ARIZONA - KEVIN AND JOANNE ARE STILL CUTTING THEIR OWN MATERIAL AND CRAFTING THEIR EPONYMOUS WORKS WITH A FOCUS ON ETHIOPIAN OPAL. THEIR EXPERTISE IN MAXIMIZING A STONE'S INHERENT BEAUTY AND EXPERT METALSMITHING IS EVIDENT IN EACH ONE OF A KIND TREASURE.
