Bo Fain Fine Jewelry
Hello, My name is Bo Fain. It is requested of me to share some words and stories about myself.
At age 16, I began apprenticing under a jeweler named Bill Foster. Bill was the original and longest employed jeweler, to work for Nacol’s Jewelry. Adam S. Nacol, My grandfather, opened his first store before I was born in 1965. I grew up spending most summers in Wichita Falls, Tx. Under his guidance and care.
He was my favorite man to talk with, rest his soul, and, one of the only people I regularly miss in presence. His honor and focus have stayed with me, as a strong influence.
He was a rare man, to balance a “Profitable– professional-life”, with a peaceful– persona-life”. After 2 years of early training, at age 18, I moved to Dallas, TX. And found work under a father and son ownership all–purpose jewelry shop.
“Rawling’s Custom Jewelers” taught me almost every technique I needed, in the 5 years I spent there. Since those years, I have learned many new things, from many shops, especially native—American styles, from “All-Tribes,” A long-standing company from Phoenix, Az.
Working under the infamous Richard Candy, from 2000 to 2007, really
Expanded my skills and knowledge of “Big Silver Works”.
From 2007 to 2013, I worked for Nacol’s under my brother, Jeffrey
Dean (Nacol) Turnbo.
A custom line was started for me, but eventually was left to “sleep”.
A pair of new opportunities came for me, … one is in the early – form
Of my own clients and website, www.bofain.com.
The second is my 25 – 30 hr. weekly work for Austin Camp.
Austin had me make him some very big and fun jewelry, and as we became friends, he was growing his Gold Exchange and Jewelry shop in Lawton, Ok.
He offered me a better and more creatively – flexible position, and I gladly accepted!
Now my options are more and brighter in this business.
Most Thanks to all mentioned, however, most Thanks and Love to my dear wife, Ruthie and my loyal dog, Yuji.
I wish to hear from you, if you like “Original-Art.” I can create pieces that you will enjoy for generations.
