Braidie Butters

And Our First Award Goes To…

Braidie-smallBraidie Butters began working in her Dad’s spur shop learning how to complete basic tasks in 2008. In June of 2009 she learned her first bright cut engraving in Folsom New Mexico from good friend Bill Lusk. From that point on Braidie was hooked on engraving. A few months later she took the basic bright cut engraving class offered by the TCAA in Oklahoma City where she was inspired to learn more about engraving and silversmithing.

Braidie now lives in Dalhart Texas where she runs B. Butters Silver creating custom designs and silverwork.
