Bob Hazeltine is an award-winning jeweler who has worked in the field for nearly 45 years with nearly every metal associated with jewelry design and manufacture. He taught at the Gemological Institute of America and supervised the jewelry arts department. He owned and ran a private jewelry manufacturing school in California, and opened a jewelry school in Albuquerque. He now makes custom jewelry, and owns and runs the jewelry school at Santa Fe Jewelers Supply. Bob believes that the creative process that lives in our hearts provides us all with an opportunity to express what is in our hearts. With the color of precious and semi-precious stones, metals and lustrous, and every thing else that is used to produce objects of beauty, he feels that jewelry is an ideal medium for this wonderful art of self expression.
