Stock gauge wire.
Every piece of jewellery begins as stock guage wire in a range of precious metals.
Heated to soften metal.
To prepare the metal for rolling, it is softened using a heating process called annealing.
Rolled through rolling mills.
It is then rolled to whatever dimension is required – square, flat or round.
The piece is lovingly and expertly hand crafted into the final shape.
Setting of the stones.
Stunning stones are set into the piece.
Finally, the piece is hand polished, ready for the client.
