The Masters Craft creates unique Masonic items for the Fraternity at large, when quality, artistry and longevity are desired. The Masters Craft is owned and operated by W. Bro. John Bridegroom, KCT, OPC. He has been deeply impressed by the artistry of items in the Masonic Fraternity’s history, and desires to continue that tradition in The Masters Craft. With no desire to be a retail store, or supply the mundane artifacts of regular Masonic operations, the focus has been placed more on projects that require a special touch, and an approach that fuses the visual standard of today with the depth and power of the designs of our past.
To serve the Craft, beautify our Fraternity, and Create. To give the Royal Art the allure it deserves, and display its sacred nature that so many are searching for.
We work hard to focus on the finer details, creating practical works of art, that instill pride and honor in the Brethren who have earned the right to wear each piece.
As an active member of the Craft, we bring an understanding of the symbolism and philosophy of each body of Freemasonry, and we strive to ensure that each product reflects the facet of Freemasonry it represents.

Stunning! That’s the word that best describes the jewels designed for our Arch Masters in Iowa. The Master’s Craft not only provided a beautiful design, excellent customer service, the finished product was even nicer in person than imagined through the conceptual designs. Absolutely stunning!
Thank you for making the Arch Masters in Iowa the most dapper group in the Iowa York Rite!
“The Master’s Craft created our chapter jewel based on a rough concept and a reference to another jewel. What we received exceeded all expectations, and we look forward to its public unveiling when our Royal Arch Chapter moves from “under dispensation” to fully chartered this fall at our Grand Convocation. John’s work is outstanding, and we look forward to working with him on our chapter penny and, in the not too distant future, our first Past High Priest jewel.” – Piscataway Royal Arch Chapter, UD, Catonsville, Maryland
“The number of brothers that loved the Past Master Jewel is unbelievable. Your work is gorgeous and will help create a sense of pride for our lodge. Thanks again for your hard work and creativity.”
