Originally from Sunny South Africa, I have been lucky enough to call England home since 2010.​

I am blessed and grateful to live and work in a lovely coastal region in the United Kingdom, where I love to draw inspiration form my surroundings. 

I have been designing and manufacturing jewellery since 1992. I starting out with my apprenticeship as a bench jeweller at a renowned Royal Appointment Jeweller in South Africa.

Thereafter I turned my attention to diamonds and the art of grading rough diamonds,and cutting and polishing them.

This I did at the world renowned Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Training School in Johannesburg.

After moving to the U.K I completed my F.G.A in London at the Gemmological Association of Great Britain. 

Having spent many hours in front of jewellery CAD software and 3D printers it was a natural progression to start up a trade workshop helping other jewellers with their designs and manufacturing needs.

Today I have my studio/workshop in the lovely market town of Wimborne in Dorset.

So if you happen to be looking for a special bespoke design, or a piece of jewellery to be repaired, feel free to give me a call or make an appointment to discuss in more detail.

When I'm not in my workshop you could probably find me somewhere out on the water, or out on my bike enjoying everything Dorset has to offer.

Thanks for taking the time to look through my site, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
