Our Jewelers:

Mark Farrell

Mark Farrell completed the Graduate Bench Jewelry Program from New Approach School for Jewelers in 2010. This comprehensive training poised Mark well to become the sole jeweler of a local jewelry store for three years before transitioning to Buffalo Craft full time. Currently, Mark is deeply involved in the jewelry community and continues to work closely with his mentors, CAD designers, gemstone cutters, and suppliers in the industry, all of whom have become valuable resources to him and his business. While he continues to take every opportunity to learn new skills, he also enjoys sharing his knowledge with this valued community wherever he can. In 2021, Mark made his first trip to Thailand to set up manufacturing for his debut nature inspired jewelry line, Elegant World. This same project saw his return in 2022. Mark continues to consult with companies looking to manufacture on a large scale. 2023 was a busy year as Bench No.5 and their clients continued to see significant growth. Further, Mark was a speaker at AGTA in Tucson, was featured in Rock and Gem Magazine and began laying the foundation for our gemstone company. Above all, Mark is dedicated to BCC and Bench No. 5 and most importantly helping our clients grow and scale their businesses from a manufacturing lens. Whether he is sourcing materials (helping our customer through design logistics), completing a repair (aiding in the manufacturing process, or fabricating an heirloom piece, Mark goes above and beyond to ensure each job is of the highest quality and craftsmanship before it leaves his bench. 

Nathan Hale

After completing the Graduate Bench Jewelry Program from New Approach School for Jewelers in 2018 Nathan Hale spent the next 4 years working as a stone setter and bench jeweler with a designer in Nashville, Tennessee. During this time, he continued his education with NASJ completing valuable courses in, Wax Carving, Advanced Stone Setting, Ornamental Hand Engraving, and Pneumatic Hand Engraving. Sharing the same passion for Jewelry as Mark, the two combined forces in 2022 when Nathan was hired as an apprentice at Buffalo Craft Company. Today, Nathan’s passion for hand engraving and gold inlay techniques propels him forward as he incorporates these skills into his work at Buffalo Craft and Bench No. 5. In 2023, he was awarded for these efforts and honored by the 24K Club for his dedication to the industry. Beyond this, he assists Mark with a catalog of advanced skills such as repair diagnostics, designer manufacturing, advanced stone setting (i.e., fishtail, French cut, bright cut, and bead and bright), rebuilds, and restorations. It goes without saying, Nathan is a valuable member of Buffalo Craft. His knowledge and experience are clear, though, he never passes up an opportunity to learn a new skill. Above all he gives immense care and attention to each job that comes across his bench.
