One of the rewarding aspects of bespoke jewellery often comes from taking well-loved but worn items and transforming them into stunning new pieces that are thoroughly modern but retain all the sentiment the years have invested.
A great example of this is the work we recently did for Ms Sian Walker-McAllister, resulting in a perdiot 3-stone pendant in yellow gold in a rubover setting.
Sian wrote to us:
“Having inherited some old jewellery and boxed some older pieces I no longer wear, I approached Nicholas Wylde for advice on designing something special and new, using the inherited pieces. Claudia spent time getting to know me and understanding the style of jewellery I prefer to wear now and produced some amazing designs. My first piece is a beautiful gold and peridot pendant and I have now commissioned a new design for some earrings to match – a bangle to follow! The whole experience of working in partnership with Claudia as designer was special and the beautiful pendant holds special memories of pieces from the past as well as being such a pleasure to wear today.”
