Loving being back in Texas. We are setting up shows in Texas for 2022 and still trying different ones to see which will fit us for our Jewelry and Photography.

Please check our Upcoming Show Calendar often.
Cedar Rapids, Iowa is where we had lived for about 15 years. Before Cedar Rapids, we lived by Dallas, Texas and Southern California. We both are retired since 2008 and of course love to do many things together such as traveling, going to eat Mexican food, taking photos together where ever we go. Some of Chris’s other interests are painting pictures, going to movies, listening to Christian and country music. Some of Gene’s other interests are Amateur Radio, movies and popcorn, watching Formula One races, and cars.
I was creating jewelry for fun for birthdays and gifts for family and friends but started selling my jewelry in 2009. I have been creating new styles each year for our shows. I am self taught and love finding new ways to create necklaces, bracelets and earrings with new materials each year. My current passion is working with metals such as copper making bracelets and wire wrapping pendants. Check out the Copper and Chains in my Shop Jewelry gallery. New items are always being created and may not be on our website. Come to a show to see my newly created items. Or check out my FB page: Duprey Classic Creations.
