Biography:

Mark’s inspiration for jewellery came from early contact with gemstones in Australia where his father mined sapphires. Mark learnt to cut and polish these stones spending six years as a gem cutter and later studying jewellery design and making in Sydney. He continues to visit the sapphire mines where he meets the miners and cutters giving him unique access to rare and beautiful sapphires.Distinctive sapphires in shades of blue, green and yellow come to life nestled amongst 18ct gold and silver. His 'spiral' rings and bangles are set with a scattering of precious stones and gold detail. New this year is a collection using rose-cut diamonds and sapphires. His stackable rings offer versatile combinations ranging from elegant singulars to vivid statement pieces once layered. Using his metalworking and gem-setting skills he creates a constantly evolving collection. Bold lustrous stones such as aquamarines, tourmalines and moonstones framed in gold and silver attract collectors and those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and design. Mark works to commission from his London studio.
