Hi, my name is Jill, my husband’s name is Michael. We have always wanted to run our own business, working together, my artistic skills and his technical/mechanical ones. I am the registered owner of our business, making it female owned. Our business is located in NW Arkansas and was established in January of 2016.
We are proud to be senior Americans and we only buy American steel. Michael has designed and created several unique tools he uses in fabricating our products. We believe in AMERICA FIRST!
Michael “retired” me (encouraged me to stay home) and leave the corporate world behind many years ago. Looking back, it was a very good thing for my long term happiness and well being. Michael was forced to retire in October of 2015 when his technology position was eliminated. We combined our skills and embarked on our journey to manufacture beautiful and practical metal art for customers. We have found our hooks are exceptionally popular.
Everything we make is a custom design. I do not use “canned” or pre-packaged clip art. I design each piece even creating designs from customer submitted pictures! I do not charge extra fees to work up a custom design for you.
We hold Crafters’ licenses with the University of Arkansas, University of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State University and offer designs with their logos and mascots. We can make other universities and sports teams’ items in metal, but only on a 1-on-1, custom order basis.
We take our metal art to a few craft shows each year. As our website becomes popular, we plan to discontinue attending craft shows – they are HARD WORK! We have been married over 25 years and we are still on our honeymoon! Our lives were destined to be – Together Forever!
