Mark’s inspiration for jewellery came from early contact with gemstones in Australia, where his father mined sapphires. Mark learnt to cut and polish these stones spending six years as a gem cutter and later studying jewellery design and making in Sydney. He continues to visit the sapphire mines where he meets the miners and cutters, giving him unique access to rare and beautiful sapphires.
Now working from his studio in London, Mark transforms rough gems using precision facets sometimes in his own freeform design. His faceting style reflects the natural beauty of colour and shape of each stone. Combined with over 30 years of goldsmithing, Mark has the unique position of being able to make both elements of his jewellery.
