I am a goldsmith and I specialise in making unique compass jewellery.  Having changed my own life in many ways, I relish where I am right now.  I’m also inspired by the idea that, sometimes, others will see my compasses in the light of their own personal changes and adventures.

My clients are from all over the world and I feel privileged to discover their reasons for choosing a compass. Sometimes, it’s a snippet about the intended wearer. Often, it’s the occasion the compass is proposed to celebrate. Its destiny in terms of future travels, is another. I’ve also heard some sensational stories about how the compass will be presented to its new owner. There are some incredibly inventive individuals out there.

Bound into each compass, is my hope to inspire individuals to choose their direction. My commitment to each one being unique is a significant part of that. That they are of exceptional quality, is essential.

Something I have noticed, however, is that many of my clients choose a compass for someone else. A big birthday, a Christening, a wedding gift, a get well wish. Kind and thoughtful individuals giving others a gift of inspiration, hope and happiness.

Now and then, someone chooses one for themselves. I don’t get to hear so much of a story from these people; just that they love it, or that it’s perfect and just what they were looking for. I like to think their choice is a bound into the beginning of some new, personal adventure.  Perhaps a commitment to their chosen direction.

A unique way to celebrate a change for the better.
