Silver, Wood, and Sail. The name I’ve given to the business that is bringing me back to my jewellers bench. After a ten year change of profession, working for a local architectural lighting manufacturer and retiring three years ago, I felt a strong urge to get back to doing what I enjoy, and what I have spent over four decades learning and practising.
I wish to create totally unique sculptures and wearable art that reflect what I love, the ocean, and what sails us across it.
I am excited to revisit pieces that have sat in drawers for many years, while I had to make a steady income for my wife and I. Now, with retirement, and pensions helping with our living expenses, I’m free to turn my ideas into reality.
The project above is once again on hold while I concentrate on new designs. I am starting a new series of wearable mini yachts in Sterling Silver. I am trying to get several pieces ready to deliver by Christmas 2019. Please follow for updates.
