Jewellery

 

As a jeweller, Bill hand-fabricates items of fine jewellery, selling them all over the world, as well as providing consultancy services to small jewellery businesses. He has a small workshop in central London where all his creations are made. He takes his inspiration from nature and the world around him.

Bill can also help you redesign jewellery that you have but do not like to wear as well as make your own creations and ideas come to life.

Bill is a Fellow of the National Association of Jewellers, a member of the Guild of Jewellery Designers, the Society of British Jewellers and the Society of jewellery Historians.

 

Conservation & Historic Object Research

 

As a conservator, Bill’s practice has encompassed a wide array of work on very wide and varied projects, ranging from Roman and Anglo Saxon stone-set jewellery in both precious and copper alloy metals, to Napoleonic field carriage guns and a D-20 howitzer from the first gulf war.   Bill’s clients have included His Grace, the Duke of Norfolk, The Royal Armouries, and the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple.   Additionally Bill regularly provides consultation services to various organisations in relation to researching historic objects and their metallurgy, providing reports for the purposes of preventative and remedial conservation.   Bill is an associate member of the Institute of Conservation, and the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.

 

Ethics and Ethos

 

In all aspects of his craft Bill strives to only use ethically sourced materials, especially gemstones. Jewellery is a luxury, but it should not be bought at the expense of the suffering of others, especially children. Some of his suppliers are Nineteen48 who own mines in Sri Lanka.

Having grown up in New Zealand Bill feels a strong connection with the sea. His first jewellery collection “Kina” is inspired by sea urchins, beautiful creatures that are both fragile and strong. Their spines are mighty and protect them from predators, however, these creatures are very sensitive to water pollution and over-consumption. As such, he hopes to donate the profits from the sale of these to an organisation that works to clean up our oceans.

Demi-Fine Jewellery? WTF?

posted by admin at 05/01/2019
What is 'Demi-Fine Jewellery? Yet another made up buzz phrase but, what the heck, let's run with it as this is what jewellery on Odissa is all about! :-) Demi-Fine jewellery is the mid point between costume jewellery and fine jewellery. It takes elements from both and allows more affordable price points to the upper end fine jewellery level by using lower priced materials such as plated Silver, lower carats of gold, Platinum and Palladium, mixing different metals, precious and non precious, Sapphires, lab created diamonds etc ...
