I aim to acheive individuality and uniqueness, a message and meaning [fine art quality].made as well as possible. Time is not relevant ,perfection is in the finished item. iI utalise fabrication-soldering, piercing, punch work, and sometimes casting techniques.
Studio visits are welcome.
Once the work has been commissioned the 3rd of the value is non-returnable. I am easy going and flexible, and ultimately want to make the best and what the cutstomer really wants. I am good at working to drawings or designs and the exact copy of the jewellery the client orders. I also replicate certain items especially one earing when one has been lost.
Prices may fluctuate, due to silver and gold prices at the time. iI aim to keep to the original price quoted, but sometimes things take longer when one has never made the piece before. iI usually ask a 3rd of the whole value as a deposit that helps with ordering the materials,
