Paul is an exceptional designer and producer. I searched for over two years to find a person to produce a particular piece of jewellery as a gift for my wife. It was important to me, not only to find someone who was capable of producing the piece but who was also the kind of person who I wanted to be involved in such a personal gift. Paul’s professionalism and talent is beyond compare. He has not simply produced a piece of jewellery, but has crafted an item which will be passed down, from my wife, to my daughter and so on. A genuine family heirloom in the making, occasionally a tradesman becomes so skilled that he deserves to be called a true craftsman. VERY rarely a craftsman has the ability and talent to be referred to as an artist. To me Paul is an artist, outstanding in his field and genuinely deserving to be labelled “the best of”. Above all he is a sincere, modest, and perceptive individual. Who I have been very happy to involve in the creation of an intimate gift for the person I love most in the world. I would not consider using anyone else but Paul in the future.
