Our Jewelers
Denise Strop

I am a University of Minnesota graduate.  I worked retail management and retail buying.  This made for an easy transition to LJS Design.  Custom design mixed with customer service has been my focus for over 28 years.  Together with experience and education I've devoted myself to creating an unique experience for our jewelry customer.


I also enjoy working and owning a business with my sister,  being a wife and a mom of 3 great adult kids (where do the years go?).  I spend time outdoors, at the cabin, traveling and hanging with my friends and family.

Trish Coakley

I have devoted over 30 years to the jewelry business and have developed a passion specifically in the area of custom design. In my many years of experience both in a retail setting and at LJS, I have been able to learn all aspects of jewelry design including the process of customizing every piece of jewelry for each and every customer.

I enjoy creating a personal relationship with each client. I am certified in Diamond Grading from the GIA. I have two wonderful children both of whom are in their twenties/thirties and have recently earned a new title as a grandma to three amazing grandchildren.
