Bold Handmade Heirloom Quality Fine Southwest Jewelry by Will Barnes

I was born and raised in New Mexico of mixed racial descent; Spanish, Native, and Dutch. My style embodies who I am, and where I came from. With strong southwest influence, my designs incorporate the essence of the southwest and its traditions, as well as the way of life many New Mexicans can relate to. I left New Mexico in 1999 and moved to southern California, where I lived for 15 years before moving back to NM and becoming a jeweler.

Before I became a jeweler, I had a variety of skilled trades in which I professed. Drawing, the fundamental root of most creation, welder/fabricator/millwright, and later mostly business stuff.

I've been making jewelry for about 4 1/2 years now, I've become a well-known southwest jeweler in a short amount of time and look forward to many more years as a jeweler/gemstone dealer. Since I've basically just begun, I feel like the sky is the limit. Currently, I've added casting to my jewelry making process, although most of my pieces are still fabricated entirely by hand, I will be incorporating more cast gold and sterling silver pieces to the mix, as well as a mix of the two processes.

If you have some dreamy ideas that you'd like to bring to fruition, I'm your guy. With over 20 years of metal fabrication experience, you'll get quality craftsmanship, as well as an investment-grade product that you can enjoy for years to come. Send me a message and we can get started on your custom, tailored-to-you heirloom piece, or check out my "ready to ship" inventory.
