Biography:

Jewellery for Special Occasions Gee designs and makes jewellery for people looking to celebrate special occasions. Custom wedding and engagement rings. Wedding anniversary gifts and jewellery to celebrate birthdays and significant milestones. Fine Jewellery Distinctive designs, characteristic of her work, reflect the fascinating path of life. The ever changing flow of experiences and choices, the secret patterns of who we are. Gee also works personal elements into your custom jewellery. Musical elements, ancient symbols, subtly woven initials, and sometimes secrets! Creative and mechanically inclined, she remains fascinated by the challenges and rewards of the profession. Using the classical skills of traditional workmanship Gee creates colourful, spirited and lively jewellery creations. She also makes sure they're deliciously wearable. Unique Compass Jewellery Gee's gold and silver compass creations are an important part of her jewellery making. Inside each piece is a real working compass to help you find your way. As “jewellery for your journey” her compasses also symbolise the choices we make in life and the dreams we pursue. Inspiration Inspired by ancient symbols and the fascinating path of life, each of Gee's creations has its own appeal and personality. Gee is a designer-maker and her jewellery is not mass produced. Each piece is one of a kind with character and individuality, uniquely handmade in her workshop studio.

Specialist Techniques:

Gee creates her pieces using a mix of techniques. Anti-clastic raising, piercing, stone setting, texturing. Making and incorporating hinges and clasps on lockets. Weaving personal meaning into custom creations for clients has become a speciality. Creating one of the best survival compasses out there!
