Andrew started his career in Sheffield at Jack Spencer Goldsmiths, before becoming the Senior Technical Jewellery instructor for the Silversmithing and jewellery College at Psalter Lane Sheffield.
He later went abroad and lived and worked In the Cayman Islands, making many prestigious jewellery collections in the Caribbean, North and South America.
He finally came back to the UK in 2000 and settled back in his home city of Sheffield where he opened two shops with his wife Creusa.
With an established handmade jewellery business, they now offer jewellery making courses to give something back to the community where Andrew’s career began.
My Handmade Jewellery is our successful brand of jewellery, made in the same Sheffield studio where we teach our jewellery courses.
Our range of jewellery is designed to show off the beautiful qualities of natural stones, particularly those sourced in the UK including Blue John and Whitby Jet.
Every piece of stone is unique with its own magical combination of colours, patterns and textures. As you will discover in some of our courses, choosing the right stone for a certain piece of jewellery is really important in jewellery making.
