Born and raised in New England, Chris became immersed in Boston's high-tech, corporate culture after graduating business school until discovering the beauty in antique arms and the history behind those who created them.  These fascinating items have outlived their creators and have withstood the attrition of time; continuing to defy a modern world where utility, disposability and upgradability increasingly supercede other endeavors.  In 2003 it was time to break free and choose a new path.  He sold his house and relocated to West Virginia where he spent the next decade learning all there is to learn about engraving and fabrication by hand.  West Virginia proved to be a great location where some of the most exciting and high profile projects came to life including a state theme chopper, a state theme Colt 1911 and state level recognition for his proprietary jewelry.

 In 2011, with the support of some amazing clients, Chris developed his own line of art rings centered on alternative metals such as Damascus and surgical steels.  These metals bring the advanced engraving techniques found in custom art knives and firearms embellishment to the jewelry community.  In 2013, WV Living Magazine honored the ring picture below:

2014 and 2015 have been a time of moving forward.  Now located in Murfreesboro Tennessee, just a few miles south of Nashville and Franklin, Chris is near the fast growing art and jewelry community.  Please check out the upcoming events section of this website for a list of show dates and thank-you for reading!
