Full Service Black Coral Repair

We are a full service facility that specializes in black coral.  We were fortunate enough to be able to purchase Mr Passman’s remaining collection of raw black coral, to insure that any replacement coral will have the same quality as your original purchase. Mike has over eleven years of experience creating, manufacturing and repairing all of the Passman collection jewelry and sculpture pieces, so you can be assured your piece will be restored to 100% of it’s original condition while retaining the original signature and trademarking.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule service for your items.  If you are in the New England area we are more than happy to schedule a personal consultation.

Our goal is to keep the legacy alive so your jewelry can be enjoyed for future generations.

about us

Mike and Shannon

Michael Tope and Shannon Mahoney are a husband and wife team with over 45 years combined experience in custom jewelry design and manufacturing.

 

Michael started his career in jewelry when he was chosen for an apprenticeship at the young age of fifteen. He fell in love with the trade and after graduating from high school he went on to earn a degree from the Gemological Institute of America. Throughout his career, he has pursued and mastered all phases of design and manufacturing. Mike’s passion and commitment to the art of goldsmithing led him to work for Bernard Passman in 2002. He is one of a few artists to have had the privilege to work directly with Mr Passman in creating his black coral masterpieces. For the past eleven years he worked for Passman Galleries keeping Mr. Passman’s dream and spirit alive, by creating some of the most exquisite fine jewelry and sculpture creations.

Shannon began making jewelry in high school using complex bead weaving techniques. She went on to earn a degree in Jewelry Arts at Revere Academy. Her aptitude for the intricate led her back to school to earn a degree in Horology, the art of watchmaking. She has worked in the North American service center facilities for both Patek Philippe and Richemont Group.  She has participated in training programs in the U.S., Switzerland and the Caribbean for the top Watchmaking companies in the world, including Patek Philippe, Rolex, Omega, Breitling, Tag Heuer, Chopard, and Cartier. Most recently she has held the position of Senior Watchmaker at the Rolex Service center on St Thomas in the USVI. Throughout the years she has continued to design and create custom jewelry pieces for clients while mastering the art of watchmaking.

Michael and Shannon currently live in Vermont with their daughter, Riley. They have relocated there from the Caribbean where they have created a state-of-the-art workshop for jewelry repair and watchmaking.
