click to put a bigger Gary Waters in his own window Hello. My Name is Gary Waters. I have over twenty-five years experience as a certified Diamondtologist, Gemologist, and Master Gold and Silversmith. My partner, Diane Houston, and I are a full service jewelry gallery in downtown Wallace, where we do everything from wire wraps to custom makes. My work is unique because all my silver jewelry starts out as .999 fine silver rounds minted from silver produced here in the Silver Valley. Chains and clasps are naturally Sterling Silver (92.5% silver), but all rings and pendants shown below are 99.9% silver. Each of my creations is unique, combining local silver or gold with gem stones found in the region, including Idaho garnets, Montana saphires, and Mount St. Helen's emeralds from Washington. Most of these one-of-a-kind creations will not be reproduced.

Beside being a workshop where we custom make your jewelry to your satisfaction, Attic Treasures is a gallery where you may just find that perfect and unique gift that you cannot find anywhere else. You know from your childhood that you always find unusual stuff in the Attic! Therefore, I recently crafted a unique line of dulcimar musical instruments just to show you that you can never predict what you will find in this Attic.

Attic Treasures WAS located at 520 Bank Street, the historic Free Press building that was known for years as Cam's Ladies Apparel. It is next to Silver Capital Arts in the White & Bender Building on the corner of Sixth and Bank Streets in historic downtown Wallace. This Queen Anne brick building was built in 1890, survived the 1910 fire and now overlooks the recently established Center of the Universe.
See the (not-to-scale 2001) downtown map for its relative location.
