I am a self taught jeweller who loves traditional techniques. I melt down old silver and gold, pour ingots and forge on my vintage anvil. Every piece is 100% unique with one of a kind textures. The forging process is far more timely but the end result makes it worth it. Jewellery should be individual and tell a story. Other traditional techniques include cuttlefish and sand casting. No stock metal is used, just grain, old jewellery and silverware.
