​ The site that you are currently viewing represents my current work along with archive images of some past work.

 

This is a recently established business, built upon my love of silver, a lifelong interest in all kinds of jewellery and the range of skills that I have aquired and practiced over the last decade.

 

Much of the work shown is produced using the lost wax process; a technique involving the manufacture of silicone moulds from my original hand-carved resin models.

 

From these moulds, wax replicas are cast which are 'invested' into a cement casing and subsequently melted out to leave a void which is then filled with mollten silver.

 

After cooling, the cement is removed, leaving a rough silver form and from this point begins the lengthy process of cleaning, filing, sanding and polishing to the desired finish.

 

The casting process generates a unique pattern of textures, pitting and fine surface cracks which have to be removed. On certain pieces, I have deliberately retained some of these to add an interesting texture to the surface.

 

I am currently in the process of establishing an online retail outlet and in the meantime can answer any enquiries through the contact link on this site.

 

Naturally, I hope you enjoy my work, and that you will call back from time to time to see new items and features as things develop.

 

Thanks for your time and please feel free to tell your friends.
