Over time we all loose half a pair of earrings or an old chain breaks. So what do you do with all those odds and sods lying around... remodelling!? Well a client had this dilemma and well, we can melt it down and remodel the gold into a new jewellery design.

So you tend to create simple, less intricate designs with this metal when remodelling. However having made jewellery for over 20 years now, there are still tricks up our sleeves!
