William K Hawkes ~ Goldsmith
When done well, emotions, personalities and sentiments shine through the precious metals and stones used, creating memories that will last a lifetime... or simply make someone smile! My specialties are bespoke, artistic and individualistic concepts. All my work is Hand-Made and I draw inspirations from a fascination I have had since growing up in New Zealand, of the natural world. As such I offer a wide variety of ideas but am more than happy to incorporate your ideas into a piece that I hope will make you happy for a lifetime. I welcome the opportunity to work with you towards providing you with the pieces you want or need, whether it’s as diverse as a show-stopping necklace design or a simple pair of earrings! Irrespective of the subject of your ideas, I will take great pride in trying to provide the best service I can. I look forward to working with you! I am a member of both The Guild of Jewellery Designers and The British Pearl Association.
- I am trained as a conservator having completed a masters degree in metal work conservation. Specifically my work has been on the cleaning of silverware and the care of precious metals.
- I also work with customers to create their dream pieces, and bring to life their ideas.
