SIGNATURE PIECE:

(THE ALTAR RING)

 

Inspired by both Mayan and Art Deco architecture, the Altar ring is a structural statement ring hinting at temples tucked behind the lush jungle foliage of the Yucatán Peninsula. Available in 18-carat white gold and set with a central Asscher cut diamond, with small white diamonds on each shoulder.

FAVOURITE GEMSTONE: Spinel.

FAVOURITE METAL: Platinum.

FAVOURITE TOOL: Handheld ring bender.

BEST NEW TOOL DISCOVERY: Laser welder.

BEST PART OF THE JOB: Customer reactions when they collect their final custom piece.

WORST PART OF THE JOB: When a seemingly simple job turns into a series of unpredictable wrongs before coming right at the last moment - if you’re lucky!

BEST TIP FROM A JEWELLER: Slow down! Take the time to do it properly at each step.

BEST TIP TO A JEWELLER: Never rush the very final touches of a job. Put it down and come back with fresh eyes, if time allows.

BIGGEST HEALTH CONCERN ON THE BENCH: Air quality.

LOVE JEWELLERY BECAUSE: I really enjoy designing for customers and drawing from our combined ideas. From there, the entire process of bringing that idea to life and delivering the final job makes it all worthwhile. The connection made with the customer, and the reaction when they receive their jewellery are also highlights.
