“Every now and then a guy just has to do something a little different, something that challenges him.”
California-style spurs offer opportunities for fabrication and embellishment that both challenge Capron and show his love of the craft. The architecture showcases the many curves and facets. These “canvases” offer areas for intricate inlay and engraving but require careful planning to execute as a unified piece. Capron believes everything must be for one purpose and one statement. A combination of fine silver inlay, sculpted 24-karat gold overlay and engraving on steel create that statement here. Capron noted, “I couldn't have had more fun telling this story.” Stand included.
Wilson Capron grew up in far West Texas with a family background in ranching. He graduated from Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1996 with a degree in agricultural economics with business minor. The same year he began to apprentice under bit and spur maker Greg Darnall. He then opened Capron Bits and Spurs in 1999. Capron’s unique designs also stem from the influence of his father, artist and cowboy Mike Capron. Wilson lives in Christoval with his wife, Katy, and daughters, Macy and Emmy.
