THE PROCESS OF MAKING
The process begins by selecting gemstones that resonate with the client's emotions and intentions. Once the stones are chosen, the creative journey can begin - with beautifully hand drawn and rendered designs.
I use FAIRTRADE or recycled gold to create my collets
Working from our designs, the placement and style of the stone setting comes into its own. I often decide to set the stones in the ‘rubover’ setting. This ensures metal surrounds the entire stone and is the strongest and safest style of setting. It is important to me to know that the piece of jewellery will last generations.
I like to upcycle as much as possible and often rework gold to produce my pieces
