All of these pendants have been hand made by Howard in his Cheshire based design studio.
Howard’s creative skills were noticed at a very early stage in his life. While he was at school, he was selected to work as a apprentice at a local jeweller’s. Here he learned his craft, working in silver and gold he mastered the the skill of bespoke jewellery design, jewellery making and repair techniques.
Later in his career he joined Manchester Minerals, a well known and respected crystal shop based in Cheshire. During his thirty years working for the Hilton brothers at Manchester Minerals he learned about gemstone cutting and soon became fascinated by the wonderful world of crystals and stones, particularly the agate’s and jasper's with their beautiful colours and banding.
Now self employed with his own studio he is able to design, create and make his unique individual one off pendants. The pendants are often inspired by geometric patterns.
Howard's passion and enthusiasm is evident in his finished pieces, he tells me
“ I never tire of working with these wonderful natural materials”
