John Michael Richardson blends the cultures of the East and West using metals hand crafted in Thailand with etching that bring unique detail to his work. He mixes the natural elements of horn, wood, bone and shell, from Cebu. From the United States he uses metal stampings. He also decorates his pieces with glass beads from the Czech Republic. The collected items are plated, assembled, and finished by hand in the United States. Rich in look, affordable in price, his work is immediately recognized and makes the perfect gift.
