MEET THE TEAM

MARK CASTAGNOLI

Seeing as he is perpetually stuck in gold rush time, the president of Placer Gold Design continues to be actively involved with creating products that reflect our gold rush heritage.  Since the age of nine, Mark has had his focus on the ground and what it yields.  He was fortunate to be influenced by his mother’s Fine Arts background.

JOSEFA RICE

Jo has been manager and jewellery designer at Placer Gold Design since 1991.  She has been associated with the fine jewellery trade since 1983 after studying both Fine Arts and Business.  She is involved in all aspects of the business from mining the rivers to representing the finished product at all our sales events.

TERI BUCKLER

Growing up in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Teri Buckler is a true child of the Klondike creeks in the North.  As principle goldsmith of Placer Gold Design, she has provided valuable expertise since moving to Vancouver in 1979.

RITA ADAMOVICH

Rita has a solid background in the brokerage investment industry.  Relatively new to the company, Rita is a great presence at our trade show events.  She is currently gaining experience in all facets of the business.
