I began making these pieces while taking a night course in metalworking. The first piece I made for sale was the hammerhead shark in the bottom row. I had several cast in Silver, and I took out an ad in the back of a dive maga-zine... an effort that resulted in about 5 sales.

Early Branding that I used

I carved all of my work by hand for several years, but as computer modeling and 3d printing became more widely available, I knew I would have to adapt! Now I am using a variety of software and hardware tools to create ever more complex designs. You can read more about the evolution of my process here.

I originally intended to pursue a career in science, but was thwarted by difficulties with subjects such as organic chemistry. Fortunately I did better as a sculptor and designer, and now I have this venture to satisfy the frustrated scientist in me. All of these products and more can be found at the TaylorCustom site, and at my Etsy store

Samurai Helmet Keychain

This piece came out great, but I didn't design the features that hold the two pieces together very well... so ironically, these take a bit of blacksmithery to assemble.
