I am rather new at jewellery making. It's all started a few years ago.
I began to work on my own, following the birth of our second daughter. I am a stay-at-home Dad, and a jewellery artist.
I am inspired by the stones themselves--often having a vision of what I will create by the time I bring the stones home. Sometimes inspiration flows from a dream-like state. Ideas come late at at night or I awaken inspired to create.
I love looking at a stone and deciding how it should be framed. I begin each piece by carving the entire setting out of wax, and then casting it in silver. I like light, open patterns with an organic feel. Buy more from this artist here
Clean your jewellery carefully with a soft, non-abrasive and lint-free cloth.
Avoid spraying perfume and hairspray, applying suncreams and cleaning products – jewellery is susceptible to damage from these.
Remember to keep your jewellery away from extreme temperatures, humidity or sunlight and don’t forget to remove your jewellery when you shower or bathe, particularly when swimming in the sea or a chlorinated swimming pool.
