Rewarded by Creativity

I’m fond of the unusual and things that ‘tick’. I’m inspired by nature and it’s perfectly imperfect creations and detailed craftsmanship. I’m fuelled by coffee and driven by dreams. My work today reflects all this and more.

I quite literally grew up in a jewellery, gift and watch repair shop. Some of my earliest childhood memories are those of unpacking crates of giftware, boxes of jewellery and creating display areas. Circumstances and life paths took many twists and turns before I eventually returned to my roots and put my energy and passion back into what makes me thrive. Many of the tools I still use today in my workshop have a long history dating back to the early mid 1900’s.

I consider myself fortunate to be able to work for myself, through all the ups and downs and uncertainties. The job I’ve created for me outweighs any other job…ever! I’m rewarded by the creativity and honoured that my creations hold treasured positions in many people’s lives when they choose a piece that I’ve made to celebrate a moment or milestone in their life.

Frequently asked questions

Do rough diamonds and gemstones shine?

The shine and sparkle of any gemstone is created by the cutting, faceting and polishing processes. There may be shimmer and shine in rough uncut gemstones, but not to the extent of a cut/faceted/polished gemstone. The rough, uncut gemstones I use are unaltered and are as shown in the listing photos.

Are the rough diamonds certified conflict free?

Yes! All my diamonds, rough or faceted, comply with the Kimberley Process to ensure they are conflict free and legitimately sourced.

Where do the diamonds come from?

They come from various diamond producing locations through out the world that agree to participate fully in the Kimberley Process.

Can you engrave on the inside of rings?

Often! Many of my rings can be engraved on the inside with your special sentiment. Message me to confirm if the ring you are considering can be engraved. There is no extra charge for engraving and I am happy to include it for you on the pieces that are engravable.

What if I order the wrong ring size?

I can usually resize for you! It’s important to try to be as accurate as possible with the ring size you select but I understand that mistakes happen. If you’ve ordered the wrong size please contact me for return instructions for resizing.

Is there a warranty?

I stand behind my work 100%. I warranty all my work for one full year from date of receipt against any workmanship or craftsmanship concerns. Items that have been altered by another or damaged outside of normal daily wear are excluded from my warranty.

Where can I find your shop polices?
