One of the stunning commissions Peter has been working on in the workshop is this stunning padparadscha and diamond ring.
Our customer, Mandy, is absolutely delighted with how Peter interpreted her wishes for a ‘magical’ ring so perfectly.
Here is a photo Mandy took of her own ring once she received it!
The padparadscha sapphire is by far the world’s most rare sapphire. They have become a collectors stone and are generally purchased as quickly as they are found.
We really enjoyed the search for the perfect stone for our customer and the result was a beautiful and unique heirloom piece to be treasured for many generations to come.
I want to thank you a million times for my amazing and truly magisterial ring. In the sunshine it becomes a fiery beacon of light and I can’t stop gazing at it. Unique and entirely magical, this ring will be a treasure for my life and lives to come. I feel blessed.’ – Mandy H.
We wanted to share with you just how well things are working as we are evolving an entirely new way of doing business.
For example, Mandy’s padparadscha and diamond ring we have exampled above was commissioned entirely remotely.
Together with much lively conversation, drawings pinging back and forth and images pinging back and forth, the process was really fluid and full of easement.
We’ve now gone through this with quite a few complex original commissions and genuinely feel that the work that has been produced, as evidenced by customers’ feedback, has not been impeded at all by the new way of doing things.

Our ability to work with our customers remotely to create amazing pieces of jewellery has been invaluable over the past few months, so we decided to make a video to explain the process and share the happiness of the recipients of two specially commissioned birthday necklaces.
Farm news… from goldsmithing to concrete spreading!
Here on the farm we work with young people from all over the world through an organisation called WWOOF UK.
WorldWide Opportunities on Organic Farms, UK is part of a worldwide movement linking visitors with organic farmers and growers to promote cultural and educational experiences based on trust and non-monetary exchange thereby helping to build a sustainable global community.
At the moment we have young guests from both the UK and Switzerland and here they are, helping our multi-talented Peter prepare a new concrete base for the goat house extension!
