My name is Richard and I’d like to thank you for checking out my blog. I hope you visit my website as well www.RichardBradleyDesigns.com , that is if you haven’t already.
I’ve always had a fascination, as far back as I remember, with jewelry and all things sparkly. In my teenage years I started collecting vintage costume jewelry and my natural inclination was to explore how and where such beautiful objects were made. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design I began working in design houses that opened in the 1930’s and 40’s where I learned many of the old and lost techniques from some of the industries “old timers”. Today I’m a 10+ year veteran jewelry designer who enjoys inspiring others as well as exploring my own creative venues.
