Areas of expertise
Fine Jewellery Techniques
Tom is an multi award winning Goldsmith based in Hampshire who has over 20 years trade experience making fine jewellery. His traditional Jewellery apprenticeship which began in 1999, enabled him to learn skills from some of the best craftsmen in jewellery manufacture, antique repair, diamond setting, and many other kinds of metalworking. During this time he also studied at the prestigious Jewellery department of Sir John Cass School of Art and Design where many of London’s finest goldsmiths have also studied.
Following his Apprenticeship studies he began working in some of London’s West End jewellery workshops honing his skills and learning Antique jewellery restoration before moving to Hampshire to start his own bespoke Jewellery business.
Amongst his awards are the Gold prize for Diamond and Gemstone setting presented to him in 2011 by the prestigious Goldsmiths Hall in London.
Tom prefers to makes his jewellery predominantly using the traditional hand techniques and bench skills passed down through generations of craftsmen. He undertakes private commissions and assists other jewellers with unusual or complex diamond mounting and gemstone setting, repair and restoration work.
On occasion as trade time permits, he shares his skills to others by teaching in his traditional jewellery techniques in his workshop.
