In mid 2013, I began conceptualizing the idea of creating my own line of wooden bow ties after meeting & becoming friends with a guitar luthier in Nicaragua. You can ask me about that story in person or via email. I will, instead, tell you that after a lot of research, and drafting out many designs on pencil/paper, I started putting my own twist on wooden bow ties. By using my surroundings as a palette to inspire my creativity and lead me to make some of the most creative physical items in my life, I was able to push other boundaries within myself that I hadn't yet explored and continue doing so today. These "pushed boundaries", give life to my unique wooden bow ties. I incorporate gemstones into my pieces, glow in the dark elements, carving elements and many different forms of, "Elements". I pride myself in originality and conceptualizing new ideas in traditional and innovative foreign forms of creating and "Doing" art.
I originally started out by sourcing my woods from Nicaraguan classical guitar scraps, but the shipping eventually became very costly and the political climate sort of put a halt to that. I now source my exotic woods here in the United States, but they are derived from countries like Nicaragua, Honduras, Mexico, Brazil, Africa, Germany, Spain, to name a few.
