in the Sierra Nevada Foothills, Utopian Stone was founded
in 1974 by G. Patrick Dyer and wife, Diane. We employ
four master goldsmiths, plus a fifth, Dean Dussell shown
below, who works from his studio in Colorado. At Utopian
Stone we specialize in high quality one of a kind work
and customer commissions. Our favorite thing is to design
for clients who have no idea what they want. As we do
not reproduce our one of a kind creations, our customers
challenge our designers who may want something similar
to a one of a kind piece, but with it’s own unique
of our designs feature gemstone carvings done by world-class
carvers such as Michael Dyber, Steve Walters of California,
Dieter Lorenz and Frau Faust of Idar-Oberstein, Bart
Curren from Washington, and Marc Dyer of Nevada City,
CA. Being located in the Gold Country, we are fortunate
to have access to natural gold bearing quartz from the
“Sixteen to One Mine” and gold nuggets from
the Yuba river, which are tastefully woven into many
of our designs.
