"Here was the natural tiger's eye before we cut and polished it into this striking pendant. If you wet the rough stone it often gives you a good idea of how it will look once polished."

How we came to make Orlap Studio jewellery

I worked in graphic design for many years, We took the Orlap brand on as we both felt it was a chance to combine our skills in a different venture to what Chris, my husband, had been previously doing. I’m happy speaking to customers, I’ve been self-employed for a long time so I can deal with all the administrative aspects of the business.

When you see a finished item, polished, boxed up and ready to go, they’re beautiful and it gives you a real feeling of pride and it’s especially lovely when someone gives you a call the next day and says, ‘I am delighted'. It’s really nice that it’s a small enough business that we get that interaction with our customers.

Chris started in the silversmithing and jewellery trade as a schoolkid. His dad took him down to the workshop when he was 13, then as he got older he enrolled on some college courses, one thing led to another and he accomplished a degree in metalwork and jewellery at Sheffield Hallam University followed by an MA. Through doing that, opportunities opened up and a different way of approaching silversmithing and jewellery design from the kind of stuff his Dad's family business had been making.

Orlap was already an established brand and together we hope we can continue the quality the existing customers have been accustomed to, and introduce and develop the styles to make it a brand for the future generation.

    Rob has worked at our workshop ever since coming to do some work experience while doing his degree at Sheffield Hallam. He has learnt the art of lapidary, and is now invaluable to us in being able to set stones in our styles to a beautiful finish.
