Gary Wiggins has been a full time bit and spur maker since the mid 90's. Along with bits and spurs he has spent many hours building conchos, bridle buckles, belt buckles, trophy buckles, saddle silver, saddle hardware, jewelry, etc.; anything to do with cowboy gear. He learned how to build bits and spurs mostly by watching others and picking up tips from many bit and spur makers over the years. He has great respect for friends like Russell Yates, Ernie Marsh, Mark Dahl, Jerry Cates, among many others. Wiggins has taught both the art of silver smithing and bit and spur making to students that come to his shop and the local high school.
