Diane has been building and engraving bits, spurs, trophy belt buckles, saddle silver, and jewelry for over 30 years.
Scalese has previously held the title of Engraver of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists. Her engraving style is traditional Western bright cut, but she adds techniques such as bulino, flare cut, and many firearms engraving styles for a result that is both traditional and attractively fresh at the same time. This difference helps her students develop and expand their own styles. Diane is passionate about teaching, which her students notice right away.
