on in and see our original, sterling silver, leather and
gemstone jewelry. We've developed this site to make some
of the excellent quality work of Norm Saunders' available
to out of town customers, old and new. We'd love to entice
you to visit our shop in person or on this site.
Songbird Silverworks is a truly unique jewelry store located
in Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint is in the northern tip of
the state and part of the great Northwest. Lake Pend O'reille
and Sweitzer Mountain Ski Resort bring visitors from around
the world to get away from it all to play on the lake and
the mountain. Songbird is located in the heart of downtown
Sandpoint adjacent to the historic Panida theatre at the
corner of First and Oak Street.
Songbird Silverworks offers personally designed and hand-crafted
jewelry by benchwork artist Norm Saunders'. Norm has had
a long term love affair with sterling silver. He and the
owners love the way sterling complements all precious and
Silverworks was established by Norm and Brenda Saunders
in 1974. The present owners, Ted and Marilyn Murray, purchased
the store in the fall of 1998. We had owned a metaphysical
book store in Moscow, Idaho. There we developed an interest
in and fascination with the various gemstones. We knew we
would eventually move to the Sandpoint area which our whole
family fell in love with ten years ago. During that time
we regularly shopped at Songbird.
When the Saunders decided to sell the store in the fall
of 1998, we knew the time had come, ready or not, to make
our move. The opportunity to buy and sell Norm Saunders
jewelry was something we could not pass up. We had already
developed other sources for sterling and gemstone jewelry
from around the world, but nothing compared with the jewelry
Our whole family is involved. Our daughter Nicole and son
Nate each has her/his role in the store, as well as Ted
and I. The kids love it as much as we do, as long as they
have time off to snowboard, wakeboard and travel!
That's who we are. We are learning and welcome comments,
questions and feedback from you.
