about HoppingdogSilver

David Frankel was born in the Bronx. In his first life he produced award-winning television commercials for a major advertising agency.

He began designing and making jewelry in 2005. Each sterling silver piece is hand made and one of a kind, some with gold or bronze accents, crystals, beads, and semi-precious stones. Much of the work is inspired by ancient jewelry from North Africa.

He was represented at Stewart/Stand design store in the Dumbo section of Brooklyn. Currently, his work can be seen at High Falls Mercantile in High Falls N.Y.
Private/Studio sales by appointment.

He and his wife Ellen Alexander live in upstate New York with their hopping dog Sparky.
