Stuart’s artistic training has been rich and diverse, following the path of both fine art and the decorative arts
Whilst studying for a fine art foundation course, he was introduced to the world of silversmithing and jewellery making, by a local leading British silversmith, Michael Bolton. An informal apprenticeship taught him techniques of the past, to combine with design ideas, for the future.
After graduating from Bretton Hall University in 1997, with a first class honours degree in fine art (painting), Stuart moved to London, setting up a workshop, enabling him to slowly start making up his own collection, whilst working as a freelance maker for other jewellers. After 8 years he then moved down to Sussex. Setting up his studio, from were he now works, creating items of jewellery and silverware, to adorn the body, heart and mind.
