Getting down to work
I start with drawing my design on a flat sheet of metal then get the biggest cutting burr in my pendant drill and rough out a shape, this gets more refined with smaller burrs and detail is cut in with gravers and files then finished by hand engraving the very fine detail. When the master pattern is finished I make a mould from which castings can be made. All the casting components are then assembled and soldered together polished and cleaned to make the final piece of jewellery.
Roz is obsessed with working with gem stones and melting metal, and gets lost in hand carving little sculptures. Roz's design style is based on nature but inspiration comes from all around.
