About the Artists

In 2016, Danny “Woody” Woodward and Stewart Williamson combined their names and their talents to form Wild Wood Jewelry, a joint venture to create and handcraft unique and beautiful rings and other works of wearable art.

This partnership fuses the skills and passions of two native New Mexicans and lifelong friends – one a second-generation custom jeweler, and the other an award-winning engraver.

Woody’s parents opened Woody’s Jewelry in Portales, New Mexico, in 1955, and the young man who shared his father’s nickname grew up working in the family business on Portales’ downtown square. A few dozen miles down the road, Williamson was raised on a ranch homesteaded by his grandparents in 1915.

Woody graduated from the Gemological Institute of America course in 1983, has been a Jewelers of America certified bench jeweler since 1999, and is the only member of the Retail Jewelers Organization in a 100-mile radius. For decades, his jewelry creations have been customer pleasers in an extensive geographic area.

Stewart, meanwhile, has enjoyed a successful career designing, building, and engraving spurs, bits, buckles, and more with a steady hand that earned him the Engraver of the Year Award in 2010 from the Academy of Western Artists, and the 2013 Adolph Bayers Spur Maker of the Year Award from the National Bit, Spur, and Saddle Collectors Association (NBSSCA).

The two first collaborated on a pair of diamond-encrusted bootleg spurs that won the Best of Show award at the NBSSCA’s Mark of the Makers Contest in 2014 in Denver, and topped the spur category at the Pendleton Cattle Barons Show in 2016.

As Wild Wood Jewelry, Woody and Stewart are partnering to build striking hand-engraved rings and other keepsakes born from gold, platinum, silver, diamonds, and turquoise.

Whether you choose a completed piece from their ever-changing inventory, or opt to work directly with Woody and Stewart to design a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, your Wild Wood jewelry is destined to become a treasured heirloom.
