Engraver.com brings tools and training to jewelers, hand engravers and stone setters around the world.
Tira Mitchell is the backbone of Precision Artistry LLC, the owner of Engraver.com. A hand engraver for over 20 years, Tira translated her love of engraving and stone setting into a business that helps jewelers, hand engravers and stone setters find and use the best tools.
Carrying tools from Syenset S.L. since 2008, Tira helped the EnSet’s inventor, Christian DeCamillis, with testing and feedback for the EnSet Original, EnSet Plus, and various other tools offered by Syenset S.L. The EnSet’s single-strike pneumatic engraving system stands out for its level of precision, control and power, especially when working with valuable stones, tough metals, and intricate designs.
We have also carried the industry-leading Leica A60 microscopes since 2012 – first identifying and introducing the microscope to jewelers, engravers and stone setters, then delivering it to them at fantastic prices world-wide.
In 2015 we partnered with Usines Métallurgiques de Vallorbe SA, the makers of Glardon® Vallorbe Swiss gravers and files. These Swiss-made high quality tools perfectly complement the EnSet line. Vallorbe also developed unique files for the EnSet Finishing Hand Piece, giving jewelers and hand engravers a brand new way to finish 3D rendered castings and pieces with difficult-to-reach areas.
In 2016 we introduced our Engraver.com Workbench. The first workbench designed to maximize the use of the Leica A60-F microscope, this bench features adjustable legs and an adjustable depth work-holding box that relieves neck, shoulder and back stress for jewelers, hand engravers and stone setters who work under microscopes.
Anybody can buy a tool. The key is knowing how to use the tool to bring out your full potential as an artist.
We take great pride in teaching people to use the tools we sell. Employing all of the latest technology available, Tira personally walks people through the basics of tool use, demonstrates tools at shows world-wide, and produces videos and live-streaming events.
We offer instructional aids and videos from Christian DeCamillis and Lee Griffiths. Videos can be purchased as Downloads/Streams or DVDs. Castings and kits are available for close inspection and skill development.
Our most recent partner, Joel McFadden of Joel McFadden Designs, is a jeweler with more than 40 years of experience. He is working with us to produce Precision Bench, a series of live webcasts that shares tips and techniques for jewelers, hand engravers, stone setters, coin carvers, and various other artists who work with metal fabrication and embellishment.
