About Us

Welcome to my website. I am a fully time-served Goldsmith who completed my apprenticeship with one of the UK’s leading Designer Goldsmiths. The passion I felt in working with precious metals and stones led me to further my knowledge and I became an FGA (Fellow of the Gemmological Association) and DGA (Diamond Gemmological Association). I worked in the Middle and Far East gaining invaluable experience in sourcing and grading fine gemstones. So if you want something really top quality or unusual, this is my field.

I specialise in working with you the client to design what you want. I listen and you can be as involved as you wish from concept to finished piece. Consultations are free and friendly and a great way to arrive at your unique item.

Whether it’s an engagement ring or a pendant, earrings or bracelet to mark a special event in your life, this is what I enjoy – hand making one off commissions. In house we specialise in manufacturing new from old – troll my website for just a few examples of ‘before and after’.

Situated in the pleasant Giffnock area I have changed many inherited pieces of ‘dated’ jewellery into stylish, wearable items; never zany, more ‘classical with a twist’.

Have you got Gold or Silver you wish to scrap? Most of us have odd earrings, broken chains, one cufflink and so on. Well, I am licensed to sell your scrap and I offer the best and fairest price and discreet service for its disposal – call for details – you will be amazed. Many of my clients have used this unique service to provide the deposit for their one off commission.

A large part of my business is repairs. I have been entrusted for many, many years in this aspect sometimes with 5 carat diamonds or simple broken chains and clasps. All repairs are carried out to the highest standard.   I have several celebrity clients who value my discretion.

In addition to my handmade one off pieces I also carry an extensive range of jewellery by other Designers e.g. Sophie Harley who designed and made the famous necklace in the “Bond” film Casino Royal, Latham and Neve Silversmiths, stockists of Sif Jakobs, Tianguis Jackson, Unique and Amber Hall, Trink, Sueno, Tara Kirkpatrick to name a few – you really have to pay me a visit to see all that’s on offer. I have many lovely things starting from just £10. You will be welcomed with a smile and I don’t have any pushy staff. Take time to browse – there’s so much to see. Pewter, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Palladium I have it all including elegant leather and Stainless Steel for gentlemen.
