Greg DeHetre got his start as a jewelry artist in 2010, while making a birthday present for his then three year old daughter. The introduction to the ancient art of chainmaille was a new awakening for Greg. Greg found the intricacies of the different weaves mesmerizing, and actual weaving meditative. Not wanting to use store bought findings in his chainmaille pieces Greg started learning, and using silversmithing techniques in his designs. As the popularity of his designs became evident, Greg made a conscious decision to work in fine metals, and strive to create only the best quality products.
Chainmaille eventually led Greg to learn various other metalworking and jewelry techniques, to achieve his main goal of making quality, handmade jewelry. A short nine years later, Greg has seen a steady rise in the demand for his unique, quality, handcrafted designs, and now pursues his dreams full time. Greg DeHetre now runs R.W. Studios, a successful state of the art studio, where he works, teaches classes, and holds workshops in various jewelry and metalworking techniques. Greg’s passion for his art is evident in every piece of jewelry he creates as Ring Weavers, which accounts for the great demand by his loyal clients, and new customers alike.
