Rob is our owner and one of our artists.  Mountain Song was his brainchild.  Rob is a third generation jeweler from Arizona whose family is known for their bold sterling and gold jewelry with complex stone inlay.  Rob's designs have won various awards and his handmade pieces often have a waiting list from collectors of fine handmade inlay jewelry from around the world.

 

Jonita Ashley

Jonita is Rob's other half, the peanut butter to his jelly.  She doesn't make any jewelry, but she has lots of opinions about it.  She manages all of the paperwork, books, orders, people, contracts, custom orders, and technology--she prefers the title Circus Master.  So she's pretty useful.  She and Rob have three kids (business gurus in training?), one dog, and two cats.

Becca's meticulous attention to detail and creative flair have created some of the most amazing pieces to leave MSJ to date!

She and her familiar, I mean cat, Luna bring sunshine to MSJ every day!
