From a young age James was always interested in design and making things with his hands.
This interest was originally displayed through his early desire to become a fashion designer, to an automotive designer through to later, and more seriously, architecture.
Despite enjoying the design component of architecture, it lacked the hands-on satisfaction he enjoyed so much.
During the last years of High School James found interest in Jewellery and luxury items through a diamond encrusted watch made by Jacob & Co. which featured a tiger design composed completely by different coloured diamonds.
Having never seen anything so complicated and impressively crafted he was in awe of such creations. As James introduced himself to the world of High jewellery, High Fashion and luxury items his interest rapidly grew into a passion then an obsession.
James quickly put himself into an Introductory to Jewellery Manufacturing night class.
After loving the trade and completing the introduction he immediately enrolled himself into a Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Engineering/Jewellery design and Metal Fabrication before landing employment as an apprentice under a very talented Melbourne Jeweller who spent many years designing and making jewellery pieces for companies such as Bulgari.
Over the next 6 years, James absorbed all the knowledge and experience he could about Australian and European design and manufacturing techniques whilst also researching the latest and most advanced techniques of making jewellery including learning how to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and advanced 3D printing.
Drawing from everything James has learnt about modern and traditional manufacturing techniques, he has designed and created his own unique technique or method of creating jewellery using a blend today’s cutting edge technology mixed with some very classical techniques. As a result we are proud to be able to offer you perfectly designed and engineered jewellery, made to our extremely high standards using the purest and highest quality materials but made so efficiently and sustainably we can offer High Jewellery at a fraction of the cost
