The history of Coldwater Creek bijoux began in Sandpoint, Idaho in 1984. Coldwater Creek Inc., founded by Dennis and Ann Pence as a mail-order company, produced its first Northcountry catalog published in a local newspaper in 1985. It offered 18 items, including women’s clothing, shoes, home décor, accessories, and costume jewelry.
Originally a small private company which employed less than 10 people, in 5 years it became highly profitable multi-million dollar corporation. So, in the 1990s, the company entered the list of the fastest growing private enterprises in the United States.
In 1993 the company released two more catalogs, Spirit of the West and Ecosong published in millions of copies. Today, the company owns hundreds of several retail stores and online sales.
Notably, the current trademark owner (since 2002) is CW Brands LLC headquartered in Miami, Florida.
One of the notable costume jewelry lines was the Christmas motif brooches, pins and pendants made in the 1980s and 90s. The company’s craftsmen created fabulous snowmen, Christmas trees, sledges, Santa Clauses, deer, etc. by hand. Traditionally, they used various materials, from metal alloys of gold and silver tone to bronze, gold and silver. Also, enamel, lucite, plastic, rhinestones and art glass imitating natural stones. Some ornaments are made of silver, gold, and natural stones – jade, amethyst, cat’s eye, quartz, and others.
