Murphy Design

The rocks, gems, and minerals I work with are a logical extension of my lifelong interest in the natural world. JCK magazine recognized Murphy Design’s pioneering use of long tapered cabochons in contemporary jewelry when it called me “bullet king” in May 1989. 

Along the way, I’ve studied design and gemology through the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, the Gemological Institute of America, and the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts.
