I met Tom from The Middle Green a couple years ago through the Whitewed Directory and was immediately impressed by his passion as a jeweller. Creating bespoke pieces as well as more classic rings and jewellery, his work is always interesting and also very well received by his clients.
So when he asked if I could come along to his workshop to get some photographs of him working, I jumped at the chance. You can see that he absolutely loves what he does and has such enthusiasm to create individual pieces that really catch the eye.
I discovered that Tom's workshop (below Oink Gallery) is packed with tools as well as lots of wonderful pieces he's currently working on. I enjoyed taking photographs of him at his work station and seeing the contrast between the process of making a piece (which isn't always shiny and smooth!) and the final glittering creation. The intricacies and concentration required to make these pieces is incredible and it was such an interesting morning.
I hope you enjoy these shots of Tom at work and if you are looking for something different, give him a call. You can find all you need on his Facebook page :)
