Not only is Bear an accomplished sculptor, but also a master of cloissone
enameling. He examines his finished pieces with a 10x power jeweler's
loupe for any flaws or bubbles. This is the same attitude towards quality
that Bear brings to all of his works. His classic cloisonne of the Grateful
Deads' lightning bolt/skull is a benchmark in modern jewelery. Being
well traveled, he also has the answer to almost every question on the
planet. He likes the Koroit & Yowah material and the pictures and
patterns that seem to be enameled into the rock, and sometimes uses
it in the production of his pieces.
