Welcome to my site,
I am a professional jeweller with 17 years experience working with precious metals, 12 years of which i have been running Danegeld. I originally trained in illustration and design before specialising in jewellery. Combine this with my interest in history and you have a full research, design and production service. i have an extensive historical library and a passion for my subject.
The designs on the website cover the 4th century to the 16th century. Almost all the pieces are copies of actual jewellery finds from museums and the remainder are designs of the time from wood or stone placed in a jewellery context.
All of my pieces are hand made in my workshop in Sussex, they are either hand forged or cast. Cast pieces are mostly moulded from metal master models, however sometimes it's more practical to carve the masters from wax.
Commissions are always welcome, my interests and abilities cover every time period , so please don't hesitate to ask for a quote on anything you may require, however out of period it may seem.
I am equally happy making and setting a modern diamond ring as i would be authentically casting a bronze age brooch.
If you want to keep up to date with new pieces check out my facebook page.
