INSIDE OUR WORKSHOP AT WAKEFIELDS
At Wakefields, we have our very own in-house goldsmiths who are comfortable working on everything from highly intricate bespoke design work, to handwritten engraving and jewellery repairs.
In 2019 we expanded our workshop, which gave us the opportunity to create even more jewellery in-house than ever before, and further utilize the skillsets of our talented goldsmiths. Their traditional craftsmanship goes hand in hand with our access to new high-tech machinery, allowing their process to be even more intricate and specific.
BEHIND THE WORKBENCH
Our Master Goldsmith, Wlodek, has many years of experience as a jeweller, “I have been a jeweller over 40 years and it’s my life. Every job is new – from costume to very intricate pieces. Each piece of jewellery I work on is individual and different. Every piece is special.”
Having studied design, silversmithing and goldsmithing at Rochester University of Creative Arts, Joey is a talented Designer Goldsmith who applies his craft and creativity in-house at Wakefields. “I have a good imagination which definitely helps with designing. I hope that with Wakefield’s help I’ll continue to improve my skillset, and in time become a Master Goldsmith.”
As well as our in-house goldsmiths, we also partner with a number of designers and jewellers across the South East, who work around the clock to create outstanding pieces of bespoke jewellery. Depending on what jewellery related challenge you put in our trusted hands, we’ll choose the right jeweller with the right skillset to complete the task.
