Jewellery photography for bespoke jewellery designers

A commission to create jewellery images for bespoke jewellery designers WERK by TCJ Designs of York.

WERK by TCJ Designs is a small bespoke jewellers situated in the historic mediaeval centre of York. They have won a number of awards for their jewellery designs in prestigious competitions and commissioned me to produce images of a new piece created for entry into international competitions.

The piece is a necklace designed by jeweller Carl Johnson and inspired by Siamese fighting fish. It features two stylised fighting fish in rose and white gold, set with sapphires in various colours and with diamonds. The photography brief was to emphasise the design features and craftmanship in the piece.

They also took the opportunity to have me shoot some other special pieces for them at the same time. I was pleased to hear that Mandy and Carl were successful in competition again.
