I began as a young apprentice for a local jeweler, performing the basic tasks of repair and fabrication of metal and stone setting. Over the years I grew in skill and technique. Desiring more from my career, I ventured out furthering my apprenticeship under watch and clock makers and historians who specialized in restoring antiques from the civil war era.
Still unsettled in my heart, I felt more drawn to designing and creating beautiful works of art. Using my love for jewelry and experience with technology, I began working with computerized milling machines and design software, bringing to life beautiful creations of museum quality.
With a desire for new ventures and a thirst for knowledge, I began broadening my experience working with sculpting material like clay and stone, working with latex rubber for reproducing my sculptures, vulcanized rubber for production scale jewelry, granulated metals for cold cast sculptures and various metals like bronze, pewter, precious metals like platinum, gold and silver. With over 20 years of experience and being inspired by God, my wife and daughter, I found my place in creating Van Cleef and Kathryn Jewelry.
Fashion Industry Experience
I have worked in jewelry design and production as well as retail sales for almost 20 years.
