The sentimental and commemorative value that jewellery holds is undeniably one of the main reasons we are so attached to these objects. Jewellery stays in the family and often has matriarchal lineage. Hand engraving is a beautiful way to capture an image on metal. My olive branches, birds, boats, anchors and byzantine crosses are engraved by Duncan Vickers. I will often stamp text or dates to mark birthdays or anniversaries otherwise ‘where the wild things are’ also does the job!
