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.
