Bruce J. Snider started his professional career as an artist and wildlife illustrator in 1977 after winning numerous nationally recognized art competition awards. He started his career as a jewelry designer 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, Bruce stumbled upon a book of hand engraved firearms - sparking new interest and the desire to master a new craft. After submitting his portfolio of art illustrations and hand crafted jewelry to a world class master engraver - he was assured he 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 occasion as photos will be updated periodically. Thanks for looking.
