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.

A CAD Designed Pendant/Brooch
-Approached by a new client to design and make a pendant/ brooch for The Mercer Company, London.
-After Martin was given the brief and background history of the company it was time for Martin’s artistic and innovative imagination to run wild.
-Over a period of time Martin created the item on our computer aided design programme. A couple of versions were created and once one had been selected, the next step was to have the parts cast in our desired metal.
-Once we received the cast parts, Martin then pre polished each part and started to assemble, this involved soldering parts together, one by one.
-Instead of pearls being placed on top of the crown, diamonds were hand set instead.
-As the item was to be used as a brooch and pendant, depending on the function, Martin solder his handmade brooch fittings to the reverse. A bespoke loop to the top was also made and a mechanism was created to enable it to be clipped on or taken off.
-The final stage was to add all pearls to the outer frame.
