That’s a difficult question. At the moment it’s opal. I’m totally mesmerised by all the colours.
18-carat yellow gold.
Hammer, there’s something about hammering. Maybe it’s the noise, or the power to manipulate metal, that I really enjoy.
Best new tool discovery:
I love our laser welder, there is nothing it cannot do!
Best part of job:
Being able to talk about jewellery all day.
Worst part of job:
Two things. Waking up in the middle of the night, thinking about a job. Constantly dropping small diamonds. They’re both pretty bad!
Best tip from a jeweller:
You never stop learning.
Best tip to a jeweller:
Never give up.
Biggest health concern on the bench:
My mental health, because I always feel inspired to make myself jewellery, but don’t have the time!
Love jewellery because:
Jewellery is a form of expression and can hold a lot of meaning. I love the history of jewellery too, a piece can tell many stories.
