It wasn’t until between the years of 2001 and 2004, upon his arrival back to New York City, that he realized his passion could also be a way of life.
Shortly thereafter, he began selling once a month at the Chelsea Flea Market, as well as consigning to privately owned boutiques throughout the city with his hand-made pieces as well as various collected antique to modern jewels.
From 2004 up to the next few years, Bruce began curating collections to go with the theme and feeling for various boutiques throughout New York City while continuing to diversify his knowledge of all types of jewelry.
In June of 2007, Bruce began casting his first collection of Ram motif jewelry and in early 2008, incorporated the Alberto Juan LCC.

His own collection can also be found on Etsy at: albertojuan.etsy.com
