Mark has been a studio holder with Craft Central for more than twenty-five years. He is a very valued member of our community, taking part in our open studios and exhibitions. He is a regular exhibitor at leading contemporary jewellery fairs such as the Goldsmith’s Fair. With  Mark’s welcoming and engaging approach he always has a circle of interested visitors inspired by his evident passion for his beautiful work. He is commissioned to make a special piece of jewellery, often to celebrate a personal event and his customers speak highly of his concern to understand exactly what they want.

Mark’s inspiration for becoming a jeweller came from early contact with gemstones in Australia, where his father mined sapphires. Mark learnt to cut and polish these stones spending six years as a gem cutter and later studying jewellery design and making in Sydney. He continues to visit the sapphire mines where he meets the miners and cutters, giving him unique access to rare and beautiful sapphires.

Mark’s jewellery uses bold lustrous stones such as aquamarines, tourmalines and moonstones, expertly cut to accentuate their natural beauty. Distinctive sapphires in shades of blue, green and yellow come to life nestled amongst 18ct gold and silver. 

Using his metalworking and gem-setting skills he creates a constantly evolving collection, attracting collectors and those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and design.  Mark works to commission from his London studio at Craft Central. This is jewellery to fall in love with and really enjoy wearing.
