About The Freeman Family
Disney has been a magical part of our lives for as long as we can remember. Our love of Disney goes back to childhood. We were kids when the Mickey Mouse Club made its debut in 1955. In 1978 we, having been self-taught silversmiths for the prior eight years, made our first visit to Walt Disney World. It may have been Pixie Dust but in one moment during that visit we saw opportunity! We presented our handcrafted sterling silver earrings to Disney, at that time selling for two, three and four dollars a pair. After much persistence we were very excited to be granted an appointment. Our son Zac, one year old at the time, was with us at that memorable meeting. The buyers looked at our earrings and loved them! Some hopeful weeks of waiting and wondering passed and then the thrilling first order appeared in our mailbox in Vermont. Thus began the most magical and continuing 35 year relationship that has evolved into the beautiful collections that we present to you today. J & S Freeman has the honor of being the first Disney designers in the world to make Mickey Logo in 14k gold, then in diamonds. Zac joined our family business when he was 22 after having a few designs accepted by Disney. Fifteen years later, he continues to be a major contributor to the design and development of our Disney projects.
After making thousands of handcrafted pieces it became apparent that we could no longer keep up with the demand so we set out to find the best company to partner with. We wanted a company that was recognized throughout the global jewelry industry as setting the highest standards and a company that could manufacture our Disney designs. We needed to be freed up to focus our efforts on creating new Disney designs. This brought us to Stuller, the largest supplier of jewelry and jewelry materials to the independent jeweler in the world! With Stuller we design and manufacture in gold and silver, using diamonds and genuine gemstones. Together, our team has created a number of very notable collections/milestones including:
