Randy experimented on his first pair of spurs, made out of a tire iron, during a cold Michigan winter in the mid 1980s. Inspired by Ray Anderson, Erlon Shirley, Jerry Cates and Bill Klapper because of the quality of their work, Randy began making spurs in 1985. Then, Randy studied the past Texas legends such as McChesney and the Kelly Brothers and eventually mastered the detailed and ornate inlaid California styles of G.S. Garcia and others.
Since 1985, Randy has continued to farm part-time and has made more than 1,000 pairs of spurs with silver inlays and overlays and fine hand engraving. Much of Randy's work is featured in museums and western stores across the United States.
In addition to designing custom spurs, Randy creates bits, belt buckles, jewelry and performs repairs and restorations on other spurmakers’ work. Known for his interest in the work of past craftsmen, many spur and western collectors seek his expertise and skills.
