Biography

Adam Garret Custom Jewelry Maker and Engraver

Adam

began his professional career in jewelry after receiving his bachelor’s degree in industrial design from The Art Institute of Colorado in Denver. Born in Santa Fe, he moved to Michigan in 2007 when he joined forces with his mother, Mary Ann Archer at her Harbor Springs store and began his total immersion in the fine art of jewelry making and hand engraving. It was the diverse disciplines that incorporate industrial design which have made it easy for him to transfer into the world of a jeweler. His natural ability and attention for detail has especially helped him become a skilled hand engraver and stone setter in a rather short span of time.
In late 2013 he moved to the Bay Area to create his own design studio and carve his own path in the jewelry world. Since his move, Adam has collaborated with other Bay Area jewelry artists creating one of a kind piece’s that are highly sought after. He has also been putting more focus on progressing his engraving and design skills, pushing the limits with his current body of work. Presently Adam enjoys designing and making unique and complex hand engraved pendants, which are hand fabricated with custom stones and often incorporate hand engraving that features 24KY gold, fine silver, copper and even palladium inlay.

“I love the design and movement that engraving offers a piece of jewelry.

It’s fluid and yet enduring and gives movement to an otherwise non moving object”.

He is also interested in bringing other design elements such as Polynesian and sacred geometry into the mix with the classic scroll and leaf patterns of centuries, to create beautiful pieces of wearable art.
