Justin was born and raised in the ranches of rural New Mexico. He found a love for rocks and minerals at a young age and learned that he could incorporate his love into jewelry. Justin joined the U.S. Air Force and traveled the world where he was exposed to the different types of art and jewelry from Europe to Japan.
Upon retiring from the Air Force Justin was able to continue his dreams of working with gems and minerals to create jewelry. His creations focus on his love for the ocean and how the serenity and beauty of a vast yet dangerous sea envelope the soul and leaves its mark.
