Every year I’m amazed at the tourists that come here to South Florida. They gather on the beaches. Splash in the clear, blue water. And hunt for treasures. I have a habit of snorkeling at our local beaches and finding all sorts of beautiful shells. I usually walk along the shore and give the shells to little kids to add to their collections. The look on their...

And the answer is none. None more black.” When I set out to make silver jewelry, I set out with the intent of a purist. What...

The classic guitar pic with a skull on it. Does it get more rock n roll than this? I always thought Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top ought to have one of these.

It’s no secret that I create a lot of skulls in Bamtastic Silver. After living in Los Angeles for several years, the day of the dead designs rubbed off on me. Here’s just a few of the skulls that are inspired by the art in East LA. Our house is even more covered in skulls as well as once someone finds out how many skulls I have, they seem to send them to...

Bamtastic Silver creations definitely relies upon inspiration. I turn to music a LOT of course. It is my muse for jewelry. While I’m sawing, soldering and forging… I like to spin a vinyl record and when one side of the album is done… I know it’s time for a break. Fav album still to this day? Led Zeppelin III. Then I throw the Les Paul Jr on...
