Michael got his interest in silver from an early age. His stepfather collected silver and Micheal found the hallmarks fascinating. His original intention was to become a silversmith, but art school led him towards jewellery, which he then studied for three years in Birmingham. He worked in the jewellery trade for 7 years, employed by different firms that gave him experience in all areas of the business. Michael then set up his own studio, and at one time was supplying dozens of galleries. Opening his own gallery in 2004 meant that he reduced his other outlets, but we are delighted to have his distinctive and distinguished work in the Bluestone. The pieces make use of substantial silver, often oxidised and mixed with 18ct gold details.
