The PRM Studio creates a full range of Precious Metal pieces: from One-Of-A-Kind to Limited Editions to being the provider of over 2,500 Sterling Silver Ponies and Triangle Staff Pins for over 18 years to the Reata Restaurants.
From the earliest involvement in the design and creation of Jewelry, Patricia has devoted her time and energy into works of art using Precious Metals and Natural Gemstones and takes great Pride in delivering quality Handcrafted work.
Over the years, new technologies have presented hard choices to Artisans about what exactly it means to be an “Artist” and what was important as an “Artist”. From a Purist View, it is our opinion that the Artist has to stay close to the creation process in order for a piece to be classified as “Handmade”. There are many new technical “advances” that remove critical parts of the process away from the Artist’s Hands so that it becomes Machine-made rather than Hand-Made. We have actively chosen to remain an Artisan Studio.
Our Studio is known for taking on challenges and repairing jewelry that no other jeweler would consider attempting.
