Pearl anniversary necklace

Graphic necklace spelling 'a&b' (the couple's initials), with Akoya pearls forming the balls of the letters and a green tourmaline (October's gemstone, their month) being the connector.

Bespoke recycled ring

Bespoke remake of a lapis, silver & gold ring. The original silver was melted down and reshaped and the entire ring was redesigned with gold bezel and granules added to bring out the deep blue colour of the gemstone. A companion silver ring, with contrasting texture, was designed to fit under the lapis ring's bezel.

Design around existing gemstone

Bespoke ring based on my ORB collection of granulated jewellery. My customer had this fabulous large oval moonstone, which I set in a custom 9ct gold coil ring.

Ruby anniversary ring
Bespoke ring based on my ORB collection of granulated pieces, toped with a sparkling ruby to mark the occasion.

Inspired by design details from a Cuban cigar label. Read about the making of the buckle here.

Skull cufflinks

His & Hers wedding bands

Triple bands with hammeded detail in9ct white gold.

Etched cuff

Textured cuff in photo-etched sterling silver.

Pearl anniversary cufflinks

Typographical cufflinks spelling 'A' (his initial), in silver and freshwater pearls. The thin arm of the letter was made in 18ct gold, to give an accent. {If you look closely, you'll notice that the gold, joined with the black pearl, also forms the letter 'b', his better half :) }

Bespoke earrings

Bespoke sculptural earrings in 9ct white gold, with golden and black pearls. Made to match my client's necklace, bought some time ago in Vietnam. One of the challenges was sourcing the pearls to match the colours of the necklace (golden pearls are not common in the UK.)

Rose cufflinks

Hand-carved rose cufflinks in sterling silver. The feminine theme of the design is contrasted by the solid form, resulting in a play between softness and hardness.

Companion ring

Some time after the original ruby ring was completed, I was asked to make a companion ring, in a matching sytle and fitting around it. An existing unwanted gold item was recycled and topped up with fresh 9ct gold to make this ring. Precise measurements and multiple fittings of one ring next to the other were made, to make sure the offset little spheres fit together like a puzzle.

Mother-daughter name necklaces

Initials necklaces in 9ct gold.

Silver MG cufflinks

Created for an MG enthusiast, in sterling silver, to the exact shape and proportions of the brand logo.

Stacking gold rings

Personalised dog tag

Tree of Life cuff

Commissioning a piece

I'm always happy to create a bespoke piece of jewellery, whether you have a specific idea or just a vague inkling. 

 

Here are some examples of bespoke creations. Some are variations on my existing themes, to match my clients' preferences or needs. Others are completely fresh designs, created to specific briefs.

 

My process is highly interactive, involving my clients in every step, from early sketches to mock-ups, so the final piece is co-created. 

 

Repurposing / recycling old jewellery

Out of love with an existing or inherited piece? I can help you put it to good use by taking it apart, melting down, reshaping, adding elements and ultimately creating a new piece of jewellery that you'll love.

 

If you have an idea, however vague, get in touch to arrange an initial chat.
