Assorted rings set with precious and semi precious stones

I initally took up jewellery making 5 or 6 years ago as a hobby but spend more and more time in my workshop in the village of Coton where my jewellery is made using traditional techniques. I work in both silver and gold and often incorporate small amounts of gold in my silver jewellery. I tend to like simple lines, symetry and the finish of a piece can make or break it for me. I like making one of a kind pieces where the individual imputs ideas into my design to personalise it ensuring that the finished piece realises their vision. This may be something as simple as choosing a stone colour.
I have trained at St Albans School of Jewellery, West Dean College and have attended courses at the Goldsmiths Centre. I am full of admiration for the people I have met along the way. All my work is hallmarked at the Goldsmith's London Assay Office. I sell through my Etsy shop 'traceofgold1'
