After following my father’s footsteps, who has been in the trade for 50 years, I undertook a 5 year apprenticeship through the Goldsmiths Hall in Diamond Mounting, and a further 2 years improvers course with a jewellers in London’s famous jewellery quarter – Hatton Garden. Through doing an apprenticeship through Goldsmiths Hall I am a Freeman of the City of London and a Freeman of the Goldsmiths. In 1997 as an apprentice I was awarded the silver award as an Apprentice Diamond Mounter. In 1998 I won gold for Diamond Mounting and the ‘Best overall apprentice of the year’ out of all 38 different sections of the jewellery trade.
Over the last 22 years I’ve worked in the West End and in Hatton Garden making a wide array of jewellery for high end customers, specialising in hand made rings, necklaces, pendants, brooches and tiaras, as well as carrying out repairs and alterations.
Now working for myself I am able to take on any kind of jewellery commission, specialising in bespoke, individually designed commissions; wedding and engagement rings, alterations and repairs. I have my own laser welder in the workshop and this enables me to repair pieces of jewellery that sometimes cannot be repaired the traditional way by many others. I can take on the whole journey of creating a new commission from design to making, to setting the stones and polishing, as well as engraving, enamelling, CADcam and provide valuations.
An item of jewellery is often very personal and sentimental to the owner which is why I aim to make the whole process of design and commission as comfortable and personal as possible by visiting my customers in the comfort of their own home or wherever they are most comfortable. By meeting the craftsman in person you have the unique opportunity to discuss in detail every aspect if your new commission.
I am proud to provide an honest service which sees the customer getting the highest quality handcrafted piece at the best possible price. My years of experience working at high end workshops ensure the customer will have a well made, high quality piece that will last a lifetime and beyond.
