"Jewelry designing had been a hobby. I used to gather used pieces in resale shops, tear them apart, and reconstruct designs for my wife. When I got the idea to engrave the Serenity Prayer on a bracelet, search engines were fairly new. I spent days looking for it on jewelry. Hard to believe today. I could'nt find it on anything, much less jewelry.

"Excited, I studied engraving methods, jewelry construction, and design techniques while obsessing on finding a way for my wife, Josephine's handwriting to be as legible and long lasting as possible. After two years of research, I developed a process to so just that and BB Becker was launched. Each piece is individually engraved, not cast or stamped, and is hand-forged.

"The technical process of my engraving is a trade secret but it starts with gathering quotations that offer inspiration, comfort, or wisdom. My wife writes the quote, and I carry it in my pocket thinking about the design it will rest on. Studying and practicing Chen style Tai Chi for over 30 years, the spiral movements, flow, energy and balance all come to play in my designs."
