Biography:

Working in mainstream jewellery manufacture at the beginning of my career confirmed my commitment to making high-quality, custom-made jewellery individual to each customer, rather than high-volume, mass-produced pieces with low production values.  For twenty years, Dot the Jewellers has specialized in making individual items of jewellery from scratch, creating innovative designs that reflect each wearer's distinctive style. Commissions are handled in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Working in Platinum, Gold and Palladium, with your choice of stone, every piece is created by hand, without mass-produced designs or parts, in our small workshop in the tranquil World Heritage village of Saltaire. Any item of jewellery can be produced, from cufflinks to full engagement and wedding ring sets with matching necklace and earrings. All design starts from desire, and the process of providing jewellery tailored to each customer starts with a conversation to establish what is wanted from each piece. Using my archive of over 1500 previous commissions as a guide, I determine the customer's preferences;  a minimum of three original designs are then produced for further discussion. Production of a  fully finished piece usually takes between six and eight weeks, although tighter deadlines can sometimes be accommodated.
