He says himself about his handcrafted jewelry: “Each of our pieces is meticulously crafted by hand using time-honoured techniques to transform precious metals and stones into works of fine art. Influenced by the dramatic forms found within nature, architecture, classical painting and sculpture, our designs are at once elegant, compelling and enduring. For us, making the most beautiful work possible involves focusing on the journey of each piece as much as the final result. This means that we source all our materials with as much respect for social and environmental considerations, as the superlative quality of the gems and metals we use”.
