I am quite happy with the workmanship and will happily pay more for a similar product from this vender in the future. Only issue I had was with USPS, but you can't fault a vender for the mail.

R’s work is outstanding and the pieces I commissioned were stunning - truly, more beautiful than I had even anticipated. If you have an idea for a custom piece, I cannot recommend R more highly. He is a pleasure to work with and is a man of integrity, kindness and wisdom. R is my favourite artist and jeweller, and hopefully I can convey some of the wonder and joy he has brought to my life through his craft. If you own work by R, you know what I am talking about. If you don’t yet, then I am excited for the moment you hold and gaze upon your first piece! It’s something that happens in the intersection of art, magic, science, treasure… a mystery understood but not necessarily revealed. Words can’t really capture it but very rarely, someone comes along who can. Thank you again, R. I appreciate your time and work, always. Jack.

I am so happy with this piece! Whenever I wear it I feel witchy and magical. Can't ask for anything better than that!

A wonderful and rare artist who makes unique, inspiring, and profound pieces. Robert's work always turns my metaphysical brain on!

Why not make it interesting?
A personal invitation is much more meaningful than a public broadcast, and far easier to comprehend. In an age of quick selfies and tweets, a completely handmade, one of a kind jewel still says, "I took my care, I searched, I thought only of you. You are important to me. Here's something so you will remember, a little thing well made and worth keeping, that flashes in the eye but is easy to hide."
I worked for a handful of years in a bronze sculpture foundry, covered head to toe in wax, making artworks for famous artists. I began to explore casting silver jewelry from waxes I had carved and which landed me the work, and was offered a studio as part of my pay. I moved on to work at an art gallery for five years, with a studio located in North East Los Angeles, where Eagle Rock, Mt. Washington, Highland Park, Glassell Park and Atwater in Glendale are, and began to focus on hand fabrication. At the moment I am jeweling full-time. I encourage you to strike up a convo if you have ideas.
Thank you for your interest.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Much of my business involves carving gemstones with intaglio designs, for signet rings and other jewels. Visit my specialty shop - https://www.etsy.com/shop/intagliogems
The best way to keep Sterling Silver shiny is to wear it. It should be stored away from the open air, in a box or drawer to reduce tarnish. You should avoid harsh chemicals, including chlorine, for silver, brass, bronze, and turquoise.
The shine on brass fades quickly, it has not been coated or treated. Look for videos online for tips on restoring brass.
Bronze, as with belt buckles and paperweights, may be refreshed by rubbing it with a used green kitchen scrub pad.
Gift wrapping and packaging
Gift wrapping is always available. The current selection is red foil paper with red ribbon.
I am available for wholesale enquiries, especially gem engraving.
