Native Texan Richard Schmidt draws inspiration from the rich heritage and faith of his beautiful and wild homeland to handcraft his one-of-a-kind jewelry.
Most of what he knows is self-taught, usually by trial and error, which developed into his artistic style. Richard loves what he does and considers himself blessed to be able to create jewelry as his full-time job.
“Designing and making jewelry is truly my passion. I put my heart and soul into each piece,” Richard says. His designs are a mix of modern style and rugged spirit, stories told in silver, gold, turquoise, coral, and brilliant semi-precious stones.
The hammered sterling silver gives each piece a distinct texture and tone while the detailed oxidation offers striking depth. When composed together, you get a showstopper of a piece.
