On the bench now ....

 What's new?  (updated 8-20-16)


This site is undergoing upgrades and content changes and may be unavailable at times.

Coming soon:  Some great customer reviews and an expanded art ring section!  :D



A lot of better quality photos are coming this way, with some already posted here, using a  Nikon D3300 and macro lens.  A great camera for the money that shoots small metallic objects very nicely.

My Facebook business page is gone .. deleted, adios, hasta la vista, sayonara, bon voyage.  Initially created as an extension to the "On the bench" section of this website,  it has moved to Instagram where there's no drama.  Time is a valuable, limited resource that needs to be invested into creating the highest quality work rather than monitoring multiple social media platforms.   Please join me on Instagram by clicking the little button at the top right corner of this home page.   Thank-you.

14mm, sculpted titanium with wide (1.75mm) 22k gold borders engraved with classic triple running wheat.  This was a huge ring with a lot of surface area and perfect for something a little more creative in the gold.  Photographed with a vintage full brass 12GA shotgun shell.

I lost my best and closest friend...

Mila was my whole world.  She was full of love and life.  She always had to be around people and had to say hello to everyone.  I raised her from a pup to be better than I  and she was.
