When you find the ideal jeweler for your team, it’s as exciting as finding that perfect gem. And Bruce is one gem of a jeweler! His attention to detail and extraordinary craftsmanship have earned him a reputation as one of the region’s most talented jewelers. The proof is in that shiny AGTA Spectrum Award he won in 2005. When he’s not creating art from metal and gemstones, Bruce’s hands are on a fishing rod or a cooking utensil. But his heart is always with his family, who he loves to spend time with.


Kathy is another customer turned employee joining PJ in 2022 as holiday help and never left. She is a graduate from University of Washington and worked in medical sales prior to staying home with her three boys. Kathy enjoys traveling with her husband Brian and spending time with family and friends.


The desire to be closer to her kids lured Denise from sunny southern California to the Pacific Northwest. She has always loved the sparkle of diamonds and couldn’t turn down another opportunity to work with them again. Denise is also a pianist and enjoys teaching lessons to more than 20 local students. When she isn’t at Plateau Jewelers or teaching piano Denise enjoys spending time with her family and playing with her grand kids.
