Martin is a Goldsmith with over 30 years extensive trade experience whose career began in 1989. Following a traditional bench skills City and Guilds course for Diamond Mounting (ADV) and Casting he began a Diamond Mounting practical apprenticeship with esteemed London Jewellers, Brown & Newirth. His apprenticeship was completed after 5 years and he was invited to stay on and work for Brown & Newirth permanently,  where he worked for over 20 years.


In 2012 Martin established his own Retail Jewellers with a traditional jewellery workshop in Essex where he specialises in designing Fine Jewellery in all precious metals and gemstones.


His work is in demand and occasionally,  as time permits between commissions,  he shares his skills by teaching new generation jewellery students in his workshop.

Student Feedback

1-Day Soldering Masterclass

The course was great - exactly what I needed to build my confidence in soldering.


Success evidenced by a whole weekend of flawless soldering in the studio!


Martin was really helpful and understanding and helped me find affordable workarounds for the limitations of my studio. He also gave me some really great pieces of advice that you'd only get from a professional workshop.


I rate this course 5 stars! (Excellent)
