Angie's List - 5 Times "Super Service Award" Winner: 
2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015!

(as of June, 2016 we are no longer advertising with Angie's List)




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 interest and the desire to master a new craft - Bruce sought council with a world class Master Hand Engraver - submitting his portfolio of art illustrations and custom jewelry designs crafted over the last 30+ years. Assured that he had the proper background - Bruce began learning the craft of hand engraving through experts within the field. Below is a growing portfolio of practice plates and completed commissions that started in 2017! Please check in on occasion as photos will be updated periodically. Thanks for looking.

So the pen and ink drawing that won me a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts School of Art in Houston as well as gold medals from the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Show Art Exhibition back in 1977-78 is the subject for one of the hand engraved Harley-Davidson engine parts I received a couple of weeks ago.
