Thomas started jewelry work at the age of 15 when he discovered that you can hammer old silver coins down into a wedding band shape and drill out the center. He then started soldering on prongs and inherited real jewelers tools from his grandfather who is also a goldsmith.
Thomas started coming to Bowen a couple years ago to get advice from the jewelers on projects he was working on and the rest is history. His love for bench work stems from his interest in science & problem solving. In his free time he enjoys carving wax models of rings and other jewelry and casting them into precious metal.
