Goldsmithing and Silversmithing
I began goldsmithing as a 16-year-old apprentice at T. J. Skeleton’s of Birmingham’s ‘Jewellery Quarter’. I worked as a ‘mounter’ under the guidance of many well experienced jewellers, who at the time formed part of the great jewel industry that existed in the heart of Birmingham. I have been making pieces of my own design ever since.
Today I continue to make my own designs and commissions in precious metals. I am a proud member of the Goldsmiths’ Livery company and promote the goldsmithing craft in the UK through my contributions to training through the Goldsmiths’ Centre in London.
