Each piece of jewelry tells a story. Symbols common around the world are combined with stones, found objects and mixed metals. Each unique piece explores human kinds common threads, the enviorment and spirituality. It's Bruce's intention that through the combination of ancient and modern symbols from varied cultures and religious perspectives, a common human spirituality can be found.
With over 40 years of experience as a metalsmith, Bruce hand fabricates each piece from sterling silver, copper, stones, found objects and jeweler's bronze. Each work is an original work of art.
Most jewelry is hand made by fusing, soldering, cutting and hand finishing each unique piece in our studio.
