 The Alchemist

Born and raised in Southern California- John has always been a California boy! He spent a great deal of his childhood hitching a ride to the beach to surf whenever possible. His high school experience was all about sports- football was his passion wrestling because he was really good at it! After a stint in the army he decided the alchemist in him needed to be explored. His Native American heritage began to come out in his creative art of choice- jewelry design. Big turquoise cuffs, incredible squashblossom necklaces and elaborate ring designs were his art form. In 1979 he formed a partnership with his longtime friend Stacy and together they created what is today- Something Fine
