A classic example of setting a stone belonging to a client: she bought this beautiful tanzanite specimen on holiday in South Africa. Together, we worked on this design. It is beautifully executed: the elements are all separately articulated.
A bespoke sapphire and diamond Art Deco style bracelet. Featuring diamonds, cut sapphires and sapphire beads set in platinum.
I love how just changing the colour produces such dramatic results. The concept for these two rings came from a Faberge design feature: that of having cut stones running over a smooth surface, and this concept translated itself into several pieces,
Chalcedony and diamond ring set in white gold.
To me, when a piece is not symmetrical balance is essential: and a perfect example of balance in my work is this bespoke ring, executed in pink sapphire, amethyst and peridot, set in white gold and diamonds.
This is a perfect example of how an old stone can be given a new lease of life. The aquamarine itself was badly scratched and restored by my lapidary. The setting was designed in conjunction with the client, who wanted a versatile jewel she could wear day or night.
