Badman Design is an awesome metalworking shop in downtown Grand Forks. Went here for a graduation gift for my girlfriend, who graduated with a 4.0 GPA (yes I’m bragging). Obviously, that’s quite the achievement, so I wanted to get her something special. Immediately, I was impressed with the cleanliness and presentation of the shop. Dave Badman talked with me and helped me find the perfect gift, a beautiful bracelet. He added a stone to the bracelet to personalize it, and he made sure to let me know to come back in to have it sized to her wrist. I wholeheartedly recommend Badman design. Dave exceeds his slogan: pretty good for a Badman? More like pretty great for a Badman.

“Badman Gallery is well worth a visit. The designs and use of metals are so creative. The lady there for our visit was very friendly and knowledgeable explaining different techniques. It’s located in a great area of shops and restaurants. Check it out.”
