A little sample of my fox face range, they come in copper, sterling silver and rose gold plated sterling silver.
This stunning piece is a Sterling Silver sand cast of an antique 17th century French latch key, set with 3 midnight blue sapphires. It's heavy and beautiful and so satisfying to touch.


Kismet & Slate offers a collection of stunning fine Jewellery designed, hand-crafted and hand finished in sunny Brighton, UK.

Welcome to the Kismet & Slate Etsy Shop, an online boutique run by me (Barnaby) a professional Jeweler and Silversmith.

You can expect to find a delicious ephemera of curiosity, beauty and eccentricity within my designs, crafted from Silver, Copper & Rose Gold. Precious stones are also a passion, I take great pride in hand setting every stone and love working with precious materials to create unique, bespoke & treasured pieces.

Aside from creating my own unique designs I find constant inspiration in rescued and salvaged examples of beauty and craftsmanship. All the antique silver & gold used in my Salvage ranges are personally sourced, authenticated and restored. I take great care in rescuing vintage treasures from being scrapped for their material value only, resulting in the ultimate destruction of fine and beautiful antique craftsmanship.

I find working with antique pieces an honour, often making delicate repairs or hand cleaning unloved jewellery and curios. Re-imagining and reinventing antique items is a joy; creating beautiful new works, adding my own twists and additions so that they may continue their story and journey.
Some call it re-cycling, some up-cycling, I like to think of it re-imagining and re-incarnation.

In addition to creating my own designs I take great pleasure in making a steady array of commissioned works from quirky engagement rings, bespoke anniversary gifts & timeless wedding bands. It is a delight to work in partnership with a client to realise a truly special piece; thoroughly and thoughtfully created made with over a decade of experience, care, dedication and love.
