Hand Crafted by Nick Palmer
Sheffield is a city steeped in the history and tradition of fine metalwork. Many associated trades survive today, supported by a network of commercial and independant makers, jewellers and silversmiths.
Metalwork and original design continue to feed the culture of the city and Sheffield is still synonymous with outstanding quality the world over.
The weight and finish of Nick's work shows a real love for metal; substantial and generous, never compromising on materials; each piece skillfully crafted with the hand and eye of a practiced sculptor. Produced in 925 sterling silver and carefully hand finished before hallmarking and polishing.
Only genuine gemstones are used unless stated.
Nick graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2007 with a Batchelor of Arts degree in Metalwork and Jewellery, following an extended period of work as a theatre design-assistant and prop builder.
After graduating he was invited to join the graduate technical team fabricating a new permanent trophy for the St. Leger Stakes steeplechase; one of the longest running horse racing events in the country.
In 2014 he was commissioned to design and produce the 'gift' element of the trophy; a silver rosebowl commemorating the 100 year anniversary of the begining of the First World War.
He continues to design and manufacture jewellery, is developing his silversmithing techniques and continues to expand his practice; to enable himself to create exciting new silverware in the future.
