In 1970, as an adolescent, Anthony Garzino found employment as a Jeweler Apprentice for Allen Green In Laguna Beach California. "I started when I was 16 by cutting stones, mostly turquoise, opal, and lapis lazuli - making Indian jewelry which was really popular at the time"

A year later Green died and Anthony found work in a large wholesale trade shop, whose clients for skilled repair work Included Tiffany's. "Mueller's was an European-style shop, and they took tremendous pride in their work." It was Mueller's pride that brought their demise.
