We are a married couple, who were both apprentices at Cartier, where we gained our passion for jewellery. Between us, we have over 50 years experience creating beautiful, bespoke jewellery for a discerning clientele.
I followed in my fathers and grandfathers footsteps, becoming the third generation of jewellers to work at Cartier. Shan followed her childhood dream of becoming a jeweller, and went on to represent Great Britain in the skills Olympics.
We married and began a family, and Shan took some time out to bring up our daughter, though she continued privately making jewellery for a select clientele. I continued to develop my career, eventually being head-hunted by Graff Diamonds where I was trained in micro-setting.
Throughout our careers we have gained experience creating many prestigious pieces, with clients including royalty, nobility, and other notable people.
The concept of Bumblebee Jewellery is to make fantastic pieces for people who love jewellery at a reasonable price.
We were both trained in traditional and modern techniques and have won numerous competitions at the Goldsmiths' Craft Council. We both received the freedom of the City of London and are members of the Goldsmiths' Company.
We're based just outside Wendover, in the beautiful Chiltern countryside, we repair, remodel, remake and fashion original items to your personal design ideas.
All our work is to the highest standard and no job is too big or too small.
Andy and Shan
