Bradshaw’s Jewelers began in the backyard of Dr. Wayne E. Bradshaw’s home. Dr. Bradshaw’s first job, in high school, was working with Ted Bauman, of Bauman’s Jewelers and later, Ted’s. Dr. Bradshaw went in to sell Mr. Bauman an ad for the Dothan High School yearbook. Mr. Bauman was so impressed that he had him come back later that day. He, then, offered him a job. Dr. Bradshaw continued to work with Mr. Bauman during his tenure as the Assistant Superintendent of the Dothan City Schools and Dean of Education of Troy State University/ Dothan.
In 1980, he and Ronny Lisenby (his son-in-law) began manufacturing and casting jewelry for jewelry stores in the area, in the “shop” in his backyard. After successfully selling to other jewelry stores, Dr. Bradshaw, Ronny and their family decided they could offer the same services to the public.
After receiving Mr. Bauman’s blessing, Bradshaw’s Jewelers was opened in Northside Mall in 1983. Dr. Bradshaw and Ronny were joined by his wife Sue and daughter, Tonjia Lisenby (whose first job was at Ted’s, also). The journey to offer Better Quality, Value and Service had Bradshaw’s expanding to Wiregrass Commons Mall. At the end of the 10 year lease the decision was made to move due to the fact that the mall was going to require Bradshaw’s to be open on Sundays, or pay a penalty. Bradshaw’s relocated to Houston Centre on Highway 84 where it remained until after Dr. Bradshaw’s death in 2011. With a desire to expand so they could better serve the public, Bradshaw’s moved to The Dothan Pavilion; where it is currently located. Run by Ronny and Tonjia Lisenby, Bradshaw’s continues to offer the new, unique and creative; specializing in custom design.
Ronny has his A. J. P. certification from GIA. As the Wiregrass area’s Premium Custom Design Specialist, Bradshaw’s Jewelers encourages their clients to bring them their old gold and diamond jewelry to make into a brand new piece of jewelry, as opposed to selling it to receive a fraction of what was paid for it. We specialize in engagement rings, pendants, bracelets, earrings; almost anything you can imagine. From ring sizing to half- shanking, diamond selection, custom design and manufacturing, we are truly experts in our industry.
