My Approach to Unique Jewellery
All of my design work is based on 60 years of workshop experience, which includes 20 years as a student and then a lecturer in colleges of Art.
My present business was started over 40 years ago.
My Artistic Vision and Mission
I am well versed in both Art and Architectural styles and movements; predominantly, but not excessively European.
Whilst I do not adopt any particular genre I feel that I can relate to most and can draw upon themes to develop my my goal of making modern personally relevant pieces to my customers’ preferences.
The whole point of making one off pieces is to make them personal to the client.

“I work only with precious metal and gemstones, with an emphasis on hand forming, colour of materials and gems.”
I choose not to use ready manufactured components in my work as a rule but I am quite happy to incorporate parts of existing family jewellery to give them a new – modern look and relevance. In other words: an item which is dated but well made can bee given new life and purpose, providing it carries with it personal sentiment.
The work I do is a joint venture and I prefer the first contact with clients to be face to face so we can arrive at a mutual vision of the end result. Regular customers, though, will often say “just do it” and “surprise me” – which is very gratifying.
For the more traditional jewellery I outsource some aspects of the project to a company hich specialises in computer aided design; who will work from my drawings or ideas and will manufacture jewellery from start to finish to a very high quality standard as opposed to most shop bought jewellery which is made in the Far East.
Last of all, I do not choose items from a catalogye and claim that they are own designs; something which is quite common in the designer brands in the retail trade in this day and age.
