Gustavo Hoefs began his career in 1981 working as a hobbyist at his Lake Worth home. He has always had the desire to build jewelry and create something beautiful. Initially he sought help from gallery owners and friends who were jewelers. Gustavo took classes at craft schools in Penland, NC, Atlanta, GA, and worked as a bench jeweler in Black Mountain, NC. Moving to Columbus, OH, he worked for jeweler and lapidary artist Mark Abbott. In 2005 Gustavo opened Beechwold Custom Jewelry, the only exclusively all custom bridal jewelry shop in Columbus..
