William has been training and working with jewelry for over 10 years, and has extensive experience with custom fabrication, jewelry repair, and lapidary (working with gemstones).
William has been working with metal since he was 12 years old, making jewelry since he was 15, and working as a bench jeweler since he was 20. He has received intensive technical training at Revere Academy in San Fransisco as well as broad training in theory and practice at the Staatliche Berufsfachschule für Glas und Schmuck Kaufbeuren-Neugablonz in Germany. William was initially trained on-the-job as a lapidarist. Later on, experimentation and creative freedom in the workshop allowed him to develop his skill in the intricate art of filigree.
When he’s not creating his latest design, William enjoys expanding his skills and testing his creativity in a variety of mediums, particularly pottery, wood, and iron. Outside of the workshop, he spends his time singing in choir and experiencing the varied landscape of Minnesota, where he is a life-long resident with his wife and son.
