About

Becoming 80 is only the beginning!

Okay here's the straight skinny. When I reached the age of 70 I asked my self "What are you going to do when you grow up? Profound question...I decided to become a jewelry designer, (since my background as an appraiser was dominated with an intense interest in vintage estate and costume jewelry), so I burned up metal for several months. I received an invitation to join a designer whose work appeared in SAk's Fifth Ave when she saw some of my designs in the latter period of my metal burning beginning. During the next couple of years I was encouraged to show my work in an art show in Houston and won first in jewelry design. Subsequently I won several national shows and was juried to Best of American Artists Jewelry in 2010.
It would seem this story has potentially large implications, big studio, lots of employees, etc. Wrong, My studio is on the back of my property in a stables built in 1919. From there I communicate with and make commissioned pieces for patrons all over the planet. From Istanbul to Australia, from China to Germany. I work with one 79 year old troll named David and we are (jokingly) the crew.

At 80 I am still asking the question, "What will I do when I grow up"?

Shop policies

Bond's Jewels wearable art is one-of-a-kind jewelry that is all hand-made and uniquely designed; no two items are ever exactly the same. Our work is predominantly "Sculptured Jewelry Art" and not "Fine Jewelry." If we are offering a jewelry item on ETSY that you are purchasing and we just recently sold it, we will make you a beautiful new piece as similar as possible to the one you've chosen, but it will be unique, as all of our jewelry is, and not identical to the item you saw pictured. This policy has worked quite successfully and everyone has been happy with the outcome. Over 600 national patrons have come to Bond's Jewels for concepts not found in stores or mass markets. We know you will appreciate the workmanship and designs and will enjoy wearing our jewelry for years to come!
