THE HANDMADE PROCESS

I take pride in the fact that each and every piece of jewellery is crafted by hand from start to finish, and I love sharing the process with others, providing a more detailed look at what’s going on behind the scenes, and hopefully connecting people more with the art of making things by hand. 

 

Most items are first carved in wax and then cast in silver using the traditional lost-wax casting method, after which they go through the finishing steps. Other pieces are fabricated from scratch using different components and assembling them into the final piece. Many techniques, tools and methods are being used during the handmade process, and it requires time and effort, so naturally a lot of love and care is being put into crafting each piece!

 

The final steps in the process are very important to me, as this is where the pieces are finished up with my signature rugged look. I personally love all things vintage and worn. I love an old pair of boots or a vintage guitar with a ton of wear and patina. That’s what gives the specific item character and personality. I wanted to incorporate this feeling into my jewellery, so every piece is finished with my signature rugged look. This is done by intentionally leaving hints of the handmade process, resulting in a few small imperfections and distress marks on your piece, giving off a more vintage and worn-in look and feel. This also gives each piece character as it ensures no two will ever be exactly the same.

Materials

I work with only solid precious metals to a high quality standard. Never plated, never hollowed out rings, never any measures to skimp out on quality.

As standard, all items are handmade from solid 925 silver, meaning the metal contains 92.5% pure silver, mixed with a small amount of other metals to make it more durable and therefore more suitable for jewellery.

I also work with other metals, most often solid gold in all carats. Any item can be custom made in a most metals – just get in touch and I’ll sort it out!
