It was during a visit to a workshop, Mike Van Buskirk first absorbed the creative atmosphere and buzz of a Hatton Garden jewellers. Here he realised he had stumbled upon a trade perfectly suited for him, uniting his fine art background and (somewhat geeky) childhood love of model-making. The design and production of beautiful items on a miniature scale was to become his passion.
Whilst finishing a degree in Jewellery and Silversmithing at the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art in London, Mike began working for several leading jewellery houses, honing his skills under the watchful gaze of master goldsmiths.
Van Buskirk Jewellery was first established in 1998 in a workshop in Hatton Garden, London's historic diamond and jewellery district. Since then establishing a reputation for creating high quality pieces using the finest techniques of traditional craftsmanship. His workshop is now based in the unique Goldsmith’s Centre in London, a community of allied trades people.
Inspiration for bespoke and personalised jewellery designs come from both Mike's own creativity and specific client requests.
