About Titanium Design Studio, Inc.

Titanium Design Studio, Inc. is a Nevada-based corporation founded by David B. South. The Company was founded on its proprietary ability to cast precision titanium pieces resulting in a level of detail not obtainable by milling titanium. The initial focus of the TDS has been the titanium jewelry industry, the fastest growing segment of the jewelry business. Due to proprietary TDS technologies, the firm can economically produce and supply jewelry in shapes and patterns, which were previously considered to be impossible or uneconomical to manufacture. Beyond the jewelry industry, TDS believes its technology has applications in a number of other industries including sporting goods (fishing rods), commemorative coins, aerospace and dentistry.

David South has spent over 10 years as a jewelry designer casting and manufacturing custom pieces. Three years ago Mr. South saw the opportunity to develop jewelry in the new and lucrative metal of titanium. He is a self-taught artisan and has had experience in mass production of silver, gold, brass, bronze and pewter. Mr. South also developed the art of stone in place casting with titanium alloys. His products have been sold to large companies including BMG Music, Universal Studios, and Deseret Book. Mr. South won International Recognition from the World Titanium Council in May 2003 when he was presented an award at the JCK tradeshow in Las Vegas.
