Bruce J. Snider M.S., G.G., GIA is a Graduate Gemologist from the Gemological Institute of America and holds a Master of Science degree in Economic Development from the University of Houston System.

He started his career as a fashion jewelry designer for the Zale corporation in 1980 specializing in custom jewelry designs. In January 1984 - Bruce J Snider Jewelers, Inc., Designs In GemsĀ® opened serving major jewelry stores, designers and corporations - as well as the general public - providing repairs, custom design, fabrication, manufacturing, appraisals, bronze statues and corporate awards.

Bruce spent much of his youth painting wildlife illustrations for showings in major art galleries throughout the Greater Houston area from 1977. After converting from Judaism to Evangelical Christianity May 12, 1987 - he traded in his watercolors, brushes and block - and decided to channel his energies entirely into "painting in diamonds, colored stones and precious metals" - creating custom jewelry designs - thus fulfilling his many clients requests.

In December of 2016, Bruce stumbled upon a book of hand engraved firearms - sparking new interest and the desire to master a new craft. After submitting his portfolio of art illustrations and hand crafted jewelry to a world class master engraver - he was assured he was on the right path. He had his first lesson January 4th, 2017.
