About Keith

Keith Bartel is a Master Goldsmith living and working in Marin County, California.

For over 35 years he has created one-of-a-kind, custom designed jewelry in gold and platinum with gemstones.

After apprenticing with Alan Revere, he later was on the faculty at Revere Academy in addition to tutoring and teaching in private studios.  Over the years, Keith has taught many stone setting and goldsmithing classes and workshops.  Specializing in stone setting, he has mastered every type of this art, from bezels and prongs to channel and pave.

Keith designs and creates fine jewelry with an attentive eye for detail.  He has produced a vast array of different styles, from ancient to modern.  “I like to start out working with clients to find out what their needs and tastes are,” he says.  “Then I draw a sketch and estimate the price.  Most pieces are handmade in my studio, by myself, from start to finish.”

Keith can help you create your jewelry dreams, from one-of-a-kind engagement rings to re-designing outdated mountings.  With his expertise and personal service, you are sure to enjoy a new and cherished family heirloom.

 

“I like to work with clients to find out what their needs and tastes are. Then draw a sketch and estimate the price. Most pieces are handmade in my studio by myself from start to finish. I prefer to work in platinum for its durability and superior setting qualities.

I look forward to hearing about your needs and designing and crafting your future family heirloom.”
