Jewelry For Your Journey
I believe that art saves lives. It saved mine.
Welcome! Enjoy my shop and thank you for stopping by!
I was medically retired from the Army with PTSD after my tour in Iraq where I served as a combat medic. It was a long struggle to assimilate back into society. I learned the art of metalworking as a way to busy my hands and my mind. I found that working with my hands to create jewelry was very therapeutic. I have been creating jewelry since 2007. Doing so has enabled me to help myself heal. I am blessed to be able to to pursue what has become my passion.
I create pieces that are different because we are all unique. I create only one of a kind or limited edition pieces from any design. I implement a variety of traditional metalsmithing techniques and love using unique and unexpected materials in my work. I use .925 and .999 silver because they are the highest quality of silver and will stand the test of time. I use gemstones, cabochons, rough stones and other natural elements in my work. I use recycled materials whenever possible. I want Taylor Metal Designs to leave a large impact on personal style while leaving a small imprint on the environment.
