Bryan Daniel Drummond is a self-taught goldsmith and gem cutter based in Las Vegas.
His journey into jewelry and gemstone cutting began in 2014 as he returned home from traveling to faraway places like Nepal and Peru. Those years of adventure and exploration ignited his creative path, reinvigorating his lifelong love for architecture, sacred geometry, and intricate patterns.
As he got settled back into the U.S. he was introduced to wire wrapping. He picked it up quickly, making elaborate festival wire wrap jewelry with intense precision and intricacy. He gradually transitioned into crafting heirloom works of high jewelry art. He was self-taught through his early years, but a desire to portray his visions in finer detail drove him to study with multiple expert mentors in their respective fields. He is one of the few jewelers who creates pieces start to finish— gem cutting, fabrication, machining, wax carving, engraving, stone setting, vitreous enamel, and much more.
After he faceted his first gemstone in 2018, he uncovered a true passion for the lapidary arts. For the next two years he shifted focus towards primarily gem cutting; reserving his jewelry efforts only for special occasions like custom engagement rings or custom pendants. His unique background in machining has lead to the use of unconventional tools for carving gems— an innovation that is evident in the distinct style and precision of his cuts.
His life-long love of sacred geometry and architecture have now found a place at forefront of his carved gemstone designs, which are embedded with esoteric and spiritual wisdom. His vision for each piece is to bring to life a concept; and to encapsulate it as a luxurious talisman for the collector to behold as a reminder of the story it tells.
