The Boys and Us
My Lovely Wife Joann, does the inking & jewelry assembly,
Nick & Jeff in the back, share the jobs of mold making and casting,
as well as sanding, polishing, drilling, etc.
and of course, the other one is me, I do the scratchin'. I also get to put up with
all of their shenanigans, but really, the LORD has truly blessed me with a great
family and a job where we can all work together.

We are pleased to present you with a very different and unique
line of wearable wildlife and Native American style jewelry,
art, accessories and sculptures.

however, when we are working a piece we will

progression from the initial engraving to the
finished piece.

reproductions of.


As you click through our collection of very unique Scrimshaw designs and other art you may notice a number of designs that resemble something that could have been made by a Native American, American Indian or Alaska Native artist, however, the products you see throughout this web site were

I am just someone that has a great deal of admiration for many Native American Indian tribes and cultures before our white forefathers tried to annihilate them.

It is my love of Native Americans that influences much of my art work here.

We hope you enjoy your visit.
