Bruce J. Snider started his professional career as an artist and wildlife illustrator 
in 1977 showing his paintings in some of Houston's finest art galleries after winning 
numerous nationally recognized art competition awards.

He started designing jewelry for the Zale Corporation in 1980, opening up 
his own company in 1984 serving the private and corporate sectors offering design, 
repair, manufacturing and appraisal services. 






In December of 2016, I stumbled upon a book of hand engraved firearms
sparking new interest to master a new craft. After submitting my portfolio of art illustrations and hand crafted jewelry to a world class master engraver - he assured me I was on the right path. 


Below is a growing portfolio of practice plates and completed commissions that began in January of 2017. Please check in on as photos will be updated periodically.
