Work Classification (Jewellery Design and Manufacture)

This is my actual job, my bread and butter and it is the thing that has occupied most of my time over the last 20 years. I enjoy it and the odd chance that I might make a tiara (my absolute passion) also exists. Not a lot needs to be said except, I make all these pieces from scratch by hand. Sometimes I design from scratch too but that is rare. Most often a client has a set or at least vague idea with a photo or two to consider or just outright copy. 

Here is a drop in the bucket of all the jewellery I have made.
