The Sunstone Store provides a wide variety of jewelry repair services to our Local Central Oregon Customers. These services are available at our Downtown Bend Location and provided by our good friend and trusted metalsmith, Bill Belli.
Bill is available for all of your jewelry repair needs:
Monday, Wednesday & Friday
11am – 4pm
Just ask any Sunstone Store employee for Bill and we will call him down from our Upstairs Jewelry Workshop.
With over a decade of bench-jeweler experience, Bill is well-equipped to refurbish, repair, and restore our customers’ jewelry. Bill was trained “on the bench” in several multi-generational stores, working with customers to create new pieces or to repair well-loved ones.
Bill understands the emotional significance of jewelry and brings the same care and respect to any piece he works on – from high-end platinum with diamonds to that special gift given with love by a six-year-old.
Bill enjoys creating new and distinctive jewelry of his own design or working with our customers to bring their ideas and visions to life. His love of art, history, cultures, and craftsmanship combine with a deep appreciation for the individual characteristics and beauty of metal, stone, wood, shell and other materials to produce jewelry and household art in a variety of styles – with a special emphasis on local and regional materials, such as Oregon Sunstone, Oregon Opal, and the region’s wonderful variety of agates, jaspers, lava, and petrified wood.
A lifetime of tinkering, experimenting and making combine with over a decade of bench-jeweler experience to turn raw stone and metal into distinctive jewelry. Bill hopes that you will share his appreciation for the wonders of the natural world combined with the skills of human ingenuity. He invites you to come work with him to make your jewelry dreams a reality and to see just how beautiful your well-loved jewelry can be once again.
