My name is Don Bahr, I have lived in the beautiful Black Hills since 1979. I have a lovely wife, P.J.,
and we have five grown children with 15 grand children. Throughout most of these years my main hobby
has been gold prospecting along with motorcycles, rock hounding and hunting Fairburn Agates. I have enjoyed cutting & polishing
these unique stones into fine jewelry, making each and every one a one-of-a-kind item to be cherished forever by

and bustle in the cities and the highways which has become too much for the species of what God
created in the beginning and placed in the wilderness to live.
