HOW IT'S MADE - THE PROCESS OF HANDMADE JEWELLERY

It all starts with hand drawn sketches.

A hand saw is used to cut each segment of the design.

Each segment is hammered into shape to achieve a beautiful contour.

When making jewellery that is to have a shiny finish, polishing involves several steps. Starting with rough grit then working your way to super fine until the piece is perfectly finished and free from all scratches and imperfections. Rubber bits are sometimes used in areas where the buffing wheel may not be able to reach well.
