Bartolo Miranda

The beginning

Bartolo Miranda started as an apprentice in Mexico City in 1969. He learned how to create hand-made design while working 7 days a week from 8AM to 10PM. After his two year apprenticeship, he went to a different shop to work on more complicated designs. 


Continuing to advance in his skill set, Bartolo was given the opportunity to come to the United States to advance his career. After getting his Mexico passport and Visa to work in America he was off to California in 1973. In Fresno, Bartolo worked for Manney's Jewelry Creations for 7 years before moving to Oklahoma in 1980 to work for Samuel Gordon Jewelry.  


After three years in Oklahoma, Bartolo started his own business out of his home in 1983 and quickly moved into a retail space in 1985 to be able to hire five other jewelers. He operated in the same space for 10 years before moving to the shop's current location in Oklahoma City where he was able to hire two more jewelers and a secretary.


Bartolo retired in April of 2017 and passed the business along to his son, Issac to continue the family business. Bartolo moved back to his home town and continues to make jewelry.

Childhood Lessons

From a young age, Issac's passion for creating jewelry grew strong. He was exposed to every aspect of jewelry repairs while watching and helping his father as a young boy. During every school holiday, he would wake up early to accompany his father to work to help in the shop by organizing tools, rolling metal stock, and melting down gold. 

TEENAGE YEARS

After graduating from Mustang High School in 1995, Issac started college at the Oklahoma City Community College. He was pursuing an education degree to be able to teach high school history until a sudden change of events that brought him back to the jewelry business. 


An employee of Bartolo's Jewelry, Max Cabrera, inspired Issac to take a second look at the new possibility of custom jewelry design.  After studying under Max's direction, Issac found himself eager to learn even more about being a jeweler.
