HOW IT’S MADE – WATCH JEWELLER & DESIGNER SAM SMITH IN ACTION:

Many hours can go into the creation of some of our pieces.  Here we can see Sam hand piercing (sawing) one of our cuff bracelets as part of the complex geometry collection.
One of the greatest things about being a jeweller is being commissioned to make wedding rings.  There’s something really wonderful about being asked to make a piece of jewellery that will be worn every day for the rest of that customer’s life.
There is no waste with precious metal which can be recycled.  Scraps of silver are melted and worked to become sheet and wire ready to be transformed into a beautiful piece of jewellery.
Before working in precious metals like gold and silver, Sam creates mock ups in copper to ensure what was designed on paper reflects well in reality.  Here she is cutting lots of small pieces to create a 3D structure.
