Derek’s process:
Made by hand from start to finish

The use of traditional jewellery-making techniques means that precious metals are hand-rolled, beaten and hardened with precision, creating the finest quality jewellery that is inherently strong and beautiful. 

Stock gauge wire

Every piece of jewellery begins as stock guage wire in a range of precious metals.

1.

2.

Heated to soften metal

To prepare the metal for rolling, it is softened using a heating process called annealing.

3.

Rolled through rolling mills

The metal is rolled to whatever dimension is required – square, flat or round.

4.

Hand worked

The piece is lovingly and expertly hand-crafted into the final shape.

5.

Setting of the stones

Beautiful stones are set into the piece.

6.

Polished

Finally, the piece is hand-polished for final handover.
