Hike began his professional career in 1988 apprenticing in New York City at a large wholesale manufacturing jeweler. His first task was creating bracelet mountings and from there he graduated into the art of model making. Under master model maker Vladimer Mann, Hike began an intensive training process involving all phases of the production process from the inception of the design to polishing the finished product. From here Hike studied under the guidance of master stone setter Paul Abraham, learning the basics of diamond setting from simple prong work to advanced pave and invisible setting.
Hike has gained experience recently in the European style of hand-shaping and forging gold and platinum for use in custom pieces, adding this skill to his already extensive knowledge of casting and molding techniques. Hike's 17+ years of jewelry experience enables us to offer all of his services without reservation. His skillful presentations and keen ability to listen to our customers' ideas and concerns have resulted in Hike spending significant time on the showroom floor consulting with the sales personnel, and clients regarding custom work.
