Simon Misdale:

I have a deep commitment to making unique one off pieces of jewellery for my clients; pieces that make them feel special.
My in-depth knowledge comes from 34 yrs in the trade with my initial tuition being with both a German and an English jeweller. I have learnt from many more people since the end of my apprenticeship.
I also do repairs and redesigning /recreating jewellery from all your old pieces.
Enjoyment comes from working with all types of materials ….if something attracts my attention …the creativity flows.
Colour and texture is also important to me as long as it in context with what I’m doing. I teach jewellery in Manurewa and in the Cook Islands. My inspirations come from everything around me and that includes my students.
