He works primarily with sterling silver and gold and uses authentic multi-colored coral, turquoise, lapis, sugelite, mother of pearl stones, and other various materials which each symbolize the six directions in life in combination with his dramatic stamp work. His colorful and innovative inlays in his jewelry are inspired by the aerial views o the earth that he sees from hot air ballooning and skydiving hobbies. His creations include rings, necklaces, bolos, bracelets, earrings, and concho belts. Every piece that is created by David symbolizes special spiritual meaning. David stamps each of his pieces with a symbol of a sun surrounded by a circle.
