The first time I walked into Markus jewelers, Markus had the gem lens over his eye, he looked like a mad scientist, not the artist that he is. I dropped off a chain for repair, he finished the repair while I waited. Wonderful job. I later had him reform some old chains into the nicest custom made gold ring. He also added another stone to my mothers ring. His work is flawless, quality beyond compare. His prices are very reasonable as well.
