Happy New Year - Open on Saturdays - Gold

Looking forward to the next year with lots of exciting commissions and loads of new designs. After a very busy Christmas its back to the bench!

In the last few months of 2012 I enjoyed meeting more of my customers in the Hidden lane where my studio is based during the First Fridays events.

I'm now also open every Saturday, so more of customers can visit my studio and I'm looking forward to meeting more of you this year. 

One of the most rewarding aspects of my job are undertaking commissions for clients and making them something completely unique. One of my favourite metals to work in is Yellow Gold and I recently enjoyed the Gold episode of this wonderful series The History of Colours on BBC4 

I'm fortunate to be able to work with and manipulate this material into jewellery every day ...and I'm still in awe of its amazing colour and the possibilities it allows a jeweller.

Below are some examples of my favourite 18ct gold commissions. I'm looking forward to 2013 - what I will create this year?
