"I love a lot of things, and one of them has always been metalsmithing. Ever since I first learned how to work with it, I knew that's what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I have experimented with just about every aspect of metal, from working in construction to goldsmithing, and the smaller the work got, the more intimate, refined, and rewarding it got."

Jewelry manufacturing is a hands-on process that holds immense appeal to us as craftsmen. The ability to develop and create new pieces each week keeps the tasks on hand feeling fresh and gives us valuable insight to the subtle nuances of the trade. Our craft grants us the personal gratification of increasing our skills and knowledge while keeping us thirsty for further discovery.

"I think the best part of being a bench jeweler is the ability to bring an idea to life. I feel so blessed to have found this career, where at the end of a productive day, I have something tangible to show for my efforts. It makes me feel sorry for the pencil pushers of the world!"
