Usually when someone sees my work for the first time their initial question is inevitably “how is it made?”. More often than not people assume all of my work is laser cut (who would be mad enough to cut out such small details for hours a day right?). Even after all these years I still get immense pleasure from the look on people’s faces which range from pleasant surprise to downright disbelief when I tell them I make all of my metal pieces myself. When I mention I often make the chains myself too they look at me like I’ve just told them I’m Elvis.
Immersed as I am in my work I often forget that not everyone knows exactly how jewellery is made. Thanks to the brilliant photographer Nelli Huié who put this video together (and rather masterfully condensed 3-4 hours of work into under 2 minutes), I can finally show you how one of my custom monogram rings is made from start to finish. Enjoy!
P.S. If you have any questions about the process please don’t hesitate to post a comment below!
