Austin Unique Jewelry
We have a love for all things that make Austin a great place to live, including the Austin music scene.
Our handmade custom guitar picks made from international coins are highly prized by many Austin musicians and music fans. They attach to a key chain, to a bracelet, or to a chain or leather thong to wear as a pendant.
Like most Austinites, we also love the outdoors and find tremendous inspiration in the wonders of nature, including astronomy, gardening and plants, and Austin’s many trails and waterways.
Owner Clay Copeland started in the jewelry business in 1970 while still in high school in El Paso, Texas. He learned to be a bench jeweler at The Sheftall Company in 1976 while managing their shop. He then ran the shop at another popular local jewlery store as well. Clay has been enmeshed with the Austin, Texas jewelry scene for years and his dedication is as solid as his work.
“There are so many beautiful gemstones, diamonds and jewelry designs out there. I couldn’t possibly limit my customers to a few corporate designers,” says Clay who has a knack for finding jewelry that people love at an excellent value. “I think I got my eye for quality and design from my grandfather who was the design furrier for Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.”
Starting his own store in 1983 gave Clay much needed perspective for the future of Austin, Texas jewelry store, Copeland Jewelers. Clay now says, “I decided over 20 years ago in Highland Mall customers saw the same thing at 20 different jewelry stores in Austin, Texas that I was not going that route.”
Within a few years Clay moved to The Arboretum Market under the name of Copeland Jewelers and soon became known for some of the most unique fine pieces that any jewelry store in Austin,Texas has ever seen.
Copeland Jewelers opened in its current Davenport Village location in 2000.
Clay’s passion is creating custom jewelry in Austin, from design to wax model making to casting in precious metals and finally stone setting of all types. “I never want to say no to repairing or making anything. I almost always find a way to get the job done no matter how big or small.”
Committed to “being honest and always doing the right thing because at the end of the day, all you have is your reputation,” Clay Copeland has earned the reputation of being Austin’s Most Trusted Jeweler.
Martin began his apprenticeship to become a Bench Jeweler at the age of 12 with his father in Nuevo Laredo.
Prior to working at our jewelry store, Martin ran shops for both The Sheftall Company & Benold’s. He also spent time in international sales with Swarogem of the famous Swarovski Crystal.
Katy has been a part of the Austin jewelry scene for years and has been with Copeland Jewelers almost from the beginning.
Katy is Queen of Pearls, stringing pearls and beads since the early 1980s and completing her GIA (Gemological Institute of America) course in pearl stringing over 20 years ago. She can show you how to truly appreciate fine pearls and how to distinguish the different types and qualities.
