After visiting a gem show in Arizona, John Cockle and his wife were captivated by some large bells being sold.

The bells took off, and John was able to quit his old job, dubbing himself “Jewelry John.” Out of a modest studio, the Bell Collection now boasts over a hundred fully functional miniature bell designs.
