Wow! What an amazing experience working with you all to create a truly special piece of jewellery! Using inherited pieces and combining them together was a wonderful idea. I enjoyed each step of the way from the initial hand sketches, CAD visuals and finally the finished article. Every time I look at it I smile and remember the very special people who left me the jewellery to be able to do this. Lara D-J. Facebook review.

-This commission is a great example of how important and cost effective it is to recycle old jewellery you no longer wear.
-A regular customer visited one morning and showed us a two colour necklace that she no longer wanted. Initially she thought of selling it and using the money to pay towards having a ring made. We suggested to her that it would be cost effective for her to have the chain melted down and transformed into the ring, rather than her buying new expensive yellow and white gold. She was frilled with the idea.
-After a brief discussion and a search online, she really liked a particular two colour band ring which had a hammered finish and outer edge wires. We estimated that there was enough gold in her chain to make this. We provided her with an estimate and once she gave us the go ahead the yellow and white gold chain was cut up and separated.
-The white gold was melted down and Martin made a simple band which he applied a hammered finish to.
-The yellow gold was made into wires, two plain and two twisted, these remained polished and were soldered into place either side of the white gold band.
-Our client was amazed with the completed ring and couldn’t believe it was made from her gold necklace.
