Island of Maui

A self-taught goldsmith who has designed numerous collections of fi ne jewelry, Bruce H. Tapley’s work transcends time. From his True Classics and Nouveau Estates wedding bands to his Hawai‘i-inspired Nalu - Endless Wave Collection and classical renditions of Old World Designs in Reflections of Antiquity, Bruce has filled 43 years with countless pieces of beauty and elegance. He says that his time on Maui reminds him of the archetype of artists in ancient civilizations not found in the rest of America. “Living and working on the side of a volcano resonates with the fire below the surface, which in turn produces life and stimulates creativity. I hope to be here doing what I love most for a very long time,” says Bruce. You can find his unique designs at several galleries island-wide or visit
