About Mark Farrell:
We are very happy to have Mark Farrell in the house! Mark is a problem-solver, a successful, independent jeweler, and a character, and we mean that in the best way possible. He will be offering his Custom Wedding Band class with the exceptionally talented, Drew Hadley at NASJ in 2016. This is a can't miss class for jewelers wishing to create their own unique patterning and custom band designs.
After completing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education from Buffalo State College in Buffalo, NY and a Graduate Bench Jewelry Degree from New Approach School for Jewelers. Mark Farrell formed his company, Buffalo Craft Company, LLC in 2010.
Specializing in custom fabrication including engagement rings and wedding bands, Mark designs unique pieces tailored to meet the specifications of each individual. Incorporating unusual textures, coupled with contrasting metals and a dark patina gives his work a saturated and rich appearance. His passion for creating handcrafted one of a kind jewelry, and his ability to manipulate traditional jewelry techniques to accommodate his unusual demands allows Mark the flexibility to bring many sketches to life that would otherwise be unreachable.
The fabrication of these rings is a special process for many couples and is truly a collaborative effort between Mark and his clients.
