For more than 30 years I have pursued the traditional jewellery making crafts at my bench, developing old skills and acquiring new ones. In 1977 I was awarded the title “Student of the Year”, a prestigious national award organised by the City and Guilds.
I have been a Fellow of the Gemmological Association [FGA] almost 20 years. This is an accolade granted after successfully completing an intensive course in the study of gemstones. I am skilled in identifying gemstones and advising on the suitability of different gems for particular purposes.
My stone-setting skills were further refined when I attended a specialist residential course at the Sir John Cass College (part of London Metropolitan University) on the fine art of stone setting.
By virtue of the skills I have acquired, I have been able to accept, in addition to the more “normal” jewellery commissions, some rather esoteric requests; a false eye made from a 22ct gold wedding ring, a gold chain-saw 30mm long for a tree surgeon, a number of golfing trophies and even a Viking longship designed to contain (eventually) the ashes of the client.
