Originally from Sunny South Africa, I have been lucky enough to call England home for the last 11years.
I am blessed and grateful to live and work in a lovely costal region in the United Kingdom. Here I love to draw inspiration form all my surroundings.
I have been designing, manufacturing, and repairing jewellery for over twenty eight years now, and after a long apprenticeship as a bench jeweller at a renowned Royal Appointment Jeweller in South Africa, I turned my attention to diamonds and the art of grading rough diamonds. I then learned how to cut and polish them at the world renowned Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Training School in JHB.
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.
So if you happen to be looking for some design files to be done, or a ring to be made, feel free to give me a call 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.
