HOW ITS MADE
All my work is handmade by me in my little studio in Berchem, using a second-hand laserwelding machine and a home-brewed galvanisation station.
I used to buy all the wire I use for my work from K.C. Smith: https://www.kcsmith.co.uk/
Since Brexit kicked in I've been buying my wire from Kretzschmann GmbH & Co.: https://kretzschmann-edelstahl.com/
The colouring method I use is called KLIAR Nano-ceramic e-coating, developed by a company called LEGOR who are based in Italy. You can read more about it here: http://products.legor.com/EN/item/3922
With regards to carbon footprint, my laserwelding machine does use a lot of electricity, and stainless steel isn’t as easily recycled as gold or silver. I try to be economic with my use of water when colouring my steel though, and I make sure I plan my time on the laserwelder to be as efficient as possible.
I am happy to repair my own pieces free of charge. I also offer repair services for other items of jewellery, priced on an individual basis. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!
