About the Artist - Sid Bell Originals, Wildlife Carvings in Pewter and Precious Metals

sid bell

It all began in Alaska in the 1960's when Sid Bell, working as a Geologist for the Bureau of Mines formed a hobby to fill the long winter arctic evenings. Living so close to nature enabled him to capture the details of wildlife and transform them into his master carvings in silver for his designs in precious metals (Sid Bell Originals) and in pewter (Pilgrim Pewter). In 2008, Jeff Karner, from Bucks County PA, who had been a long time customer of Sid Bell Originals, purchased all of the authentic Sid Bell designs, masters and molds, and all of the rights of both Sid Bell Originals & Pilgrim Pewter. The company continues to cast the original designs from Sid Bell and they are made in the same way that Sid made them for production. Sid used his single master carving of each piece to recreate his lapel pins, bolo ties, buckles and all of his items. Almost every silver piece has the copyright mark and date that Sid introduced the design into production; ie 1964. So when you order most any piece, a bit of its history is usually on the back of the item, in addition to the artists's makers mark, Sid Bell, Tully NY.
