Artist Bio

Dean Wilson
Master Blacksmith,
Master Silversmith, 
Master Craftsman, and Jeweler

est. Utah | c. Cedar City, Utah



Dean Wilson is a master of more than just one craft: farrier, blacksmith, silversmith, and jeweler.  His creative creativity and a love of the Great American Southwest that has driven him throughout his life. Starting out as a blacksmith and farrier, Dean honed his skills over the years, producing horseshoes, belt-buckles, and authentic old-style Texas spurs for the modern-day cowboy. His unique western-flair and enthusiasm for his trade earned him the title of Master Blacksmith.

However, Dean's creativity did not stop there. As he continued to grow and evolve as an artist, he found himself expanding beyond the world of blacksmithing and into the realm of jewelry design. He began developing original designs, incorporating not only his knowledge of blacksmithing but also his skills as a lapidary and silversmith.

Each piece that Dean creates is wholly unique, and he begins by allowing each stone or coin to be a part of his creative process. He hand-forges each piece using his trusty hammer and anvil, and the base-piece can take more than 100 blows to create. Once the base-piece is complete, Dean patinas the iron before accenting it with sterling silver, gold, brass, and/or copper. 

Dean's journey as a blacksmith, farrier, rock-hound, silversmith, and jeweler has been a long and rewarding one, filled with challenges and triumphs. But through it all, his love of the craft and his devotion to his work have never wavered. He continues to design and handcraft beautiful pieces that capture the essence of the American West and the spirit of creativity and innovation that has driven him throughout his life.
