Studio Pandora Custom Jewelry Design is located in the heart of downtown Missoula, Montana. In addition to designing custom jewelry, their in-house goldsmiths create beautiful elk ivory jewelry, Montana sapphire jewelry, perform heirloom jewelry restoration and every kind of jewelry repair.
Karahan Balli, the master goldsmith, designer and owner, has been handcrafting jewelry for over 25 years. Born and raised in Adana, Turkey, his father owned a jewelry store named "Pandora" where Karahan first learned his goldsmithing skills. In his young adult life, Karahan showed his artistic talent and excellent business skills by owning his own jewelry store in Adana and continued to learn various goldsmithing techniques. After moving to the United States, he went on to work as a master goldsmith for years. When the opportunity presented itself, he opened his own store in Missoula.
Being an avid hunter and fisherman, Karahan is passionate about wildlife conservation and shows his dedication to various wildlife foundations and management groups by donations and continued support. Using "Green Metal Casting" on all of his designs (100% recycled gold, silver and platinum,)Karahan believes that this is yet another way he can contribute to the preservation of our environment.
Studio Pandora is proud to offer a limited lifetime warranty and stands by the quality of their work. Open to special projects and working directly with the customer for the design, each piece is excellently hand crafted, representing the customer's style as well as the beauty of nature.
Studio Pandora gives generously to several non-profit organizations because we believe they work to preserve our beautiful outdoors and we are proud to donate to them.
