Three cliffs Bay pendant - How its made by Gower silversmith



How its made buy Pa-pa jewellery. 

I was asked by a friend to design and make a pendant in silver showing a view of Three Cliffs Bay, Gower with a portrait of their dog Lexi sitting in the foreground.  This shortened video shows how it was made at the Pa-pa workshop on the edge of the Gower Peninsula South Wales. 

I begin by drawing the design, working out the composition, hand carving the head the dog in silver clay and cutting the landscape from silver sheet. The later stages of the creative  process include setting a white diamond at the top of the pendant and polishing which is too long a process for the purpose of this short film. 

You can see more at the Pa-pa jewellery you tube channel.

I hope you are inspired.

Best regards Phillippa/Designer maker at Pa-pa jewellery www.pa-pajewellery.co.uk

How its made by Gower silversmith at Pa-pa Jewellery

A short video filmed at the Pa-pa jewellery workshop on the edge of the Gower, near Swansea South Wales. I show how I design and plan a bespoke piece of jewellery for a customer, creating a unique piece of jewellery that will hopefully remind them of days spent at Three Cliffs Bay Gower with their lovely dog Lexi.

Unusual cuff bangle at Pa-pa Gallery, Parkmill, Gower , Wales. UK SA3 2EH

Solid silver cuff bangle by Pa-pa Jewellery Gower
At Pa-pa we often get asked to create something unusual for our customers. In this design I tried to combine a passion for the sea with a love of music for a gifted fiddle player . This solid silver bangle was designed and made by Pa-pa jewellery for Xmas 2016.

The Pa-pa Gallery is a situated in the heart of the Gower Peninsula, South Wales. At the Gallery we offer a bespoke jewellery making service in silver or in gold. Most of the designs in store are one off pieces or are part of a limited edition of the Pa-pa collection.
Pa-pa designs are must for anyone who enjoys walks along wildflower splattered sand dunes and rugged cliff tops. They would share my passion for the tumbling surf along our sandy and rocky shores and the beautifully diverse wilderness of marine-life that lies beneath the ocean waves.

Most of the sea themed jewellery designs can be altered, customers may select the colour of beads or stones and components can be added or replaced. We have a small collection of stones to choose from instore.
Every item that is ordered is displayed in a stylish complementary gift box with the pa-pa designer jewellery logo printed on the inside. All the handmade jewellery designs in my Collection are stamped with my own personalized hallmark, to verify the silver or gold content. I use only the best precious and semi-precious stones to enhance and compliment my unique designs.

We also stock luxurious merino woolen and linen scalves . High quality Italian leather handbags in a stunning array of unusual colours also compliment our designs.
