It's happened I'VE RETIRED.
However, I will continue to produce work part-time on a mail order-only basis. Please plan ahead to allow for shipping time. There is no longer any place in the RF Valley where these can be picked up.
At the moment I
have very limited stock inventory available, (see links below) and NEW service I'll also be re-selling Used Pieces for clients at a lower
cost to the public. Both will be posted as I have them available.
I will keep some limited inventory of small items in stock and they will be posted on this
Finished belt buckles for immediate purchase will also be posted.
I am no longer taking custom orders or taking names for a waiting list. What is shown on the in-stock pages (not the pricing pages) is what is available for purchase. (on a phone look for the small white menu bars).
Pricing changes: Volatility in the metal markets! At the moment silver and gold are fluctuating between 166% and 200% of previous prices. I am keeping new pricing at the lower end of these for as long as I can. I have not instituted any upwards price changes in 18 years so I guess it is overdue.
Thank you all for your loyal support and patronage, it’s been a pleasure.
