HANDMAKING VS CAD
Its a real shame but with the advent of Computer Aided Design (CAD) many of the traditional skills of goldsmithing - going back centuries - are being lost.
We are dedicated to keeping them alive through apprentice schemes and promoting the idea that traditional skills work effectively alongside new technologies. Our team of experienced goldsmiths can and do create jewellery by starting with the very basic elements - wire and sheet - and by carefully hammering, shaping and working the metal into beautiful and intricate works of art.
This isn't to say that all our jewellery is hand forged from bullion. Sometimes its more appropriate to start from a pre-cast part and add to it, or sometimes a bespoke project is just simply easier to do via CAD - it all depends on the project and finding the best way to construct it.
