Hello, I am a professional Gemologist,(GIA) and Gold/Silversmith in exile!  

My wife and I owned and operated Blue Diamond Jewelers at 4747 Hondo Pass in El Paso Texas, a retail jewelry store, from 1992 until 2012 when we had to close due to the sagging economy.  

I custom designed my own line of jewelry for sale in my store.  I also worked with customers directly to create their own unique jewelry.  I designed many couples wedding rings.  I have even been invited to several weddings customers were so pleased!



CURRENTLY:

I now apply my 20 years experience as a Goldsmith and Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America in making one of a kind, original jewelry.  I sometimes use  gemstones, often not.  I work with copper, bronze, and sterling silver for sale at affordable prices locally as art show vendors. These pieces are all hand fabrication.  Of course I can still do work in gold, please contact me for pricing.

I also hand sign all of my pendants (not necessarily rings and earrings due to the smaller size) with the Greek word Ψυχή, which means soul or butterfly.  The theme of my work is transformation.  Taking base metal and making art out of it.  My work is an expression of what a personal relationship with Jesus has done in my life! 

My wife and son both assist me as local art vendors. We are involved in the local art community and take part in scheduled events like the "Art Crawl".

My wife contributes by custom making AMAZING tie-dye clothing and my 13 year old son is learning to make jewelry from me. I am trying to pass on my skills to him to keep the "flame" of metalsmithing art alive for the next generation. All 3 of us sell our art at local art shows, flea markets, festivals, etc.

Unfortunately, there are just not enough events that occur to come close to quitting my day job, this is where Patreon comes in.

My goal for Patreon is to REPLACE MY DAY JOB and continue as a local artist FULL TIME. Meeting my goal with Patreon will therefore enable me to be a full time artist again.

The world can use one more full time artist and one less telemarketer!

El Paso desperately needs more beauty, our poverty rate is 50% over the national average. We have some of the poorest zip codes in the country and areas (Segundo Barrio) that don't even have running water.

We often set up downtown in the heart of the city with a beautiful display of affordable unique creations. We believe art needs a revival here to help advance the culture and enrich our individual lives.

We want to do this full time,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
