About

London based Jeweller Daniel Darby has gained a reputation for beautifully crafted jewellery that takes inspiration from surprising sources.

I have been designing and making jewellery for over 10 years. I started studying jewellery design at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University. After graduating I spent time working for some of London's most respected Silversmiths and jewellery houses, whilst spending my weekends selling handmade silver jewellery at markets and craft fairs around the city. In 2010 I established Daniel Darby Jewellery, designing for men and women. I enjoy trying to find and capture elegant beauty from what would otherwise be harsh, spikey or industrial subject matter.

Traditional techniques still underpin all of my designs, and every piece is lovingly hand made in my workshop. The aim is to create jewellery that will be treasured, and stands the test of time.

Lost Wax Casting; How I hand carve Jewellery.

I hand carve my designs from wax. Working by hand I am able to add tiny details and textures that give each piece an unmistakable character. The wax master can then be used to make a mould, this can be used to cast the design into precious metal using the lost wax casting technique. Once cast it is worked on by hand through a variety of stage to file and clean up the casting, before finally being polished when it becomes a finished piece of jewellery.

    "The quirky silver iron necklace was a perfect find for a sixth anniversary gift - much better than something actually made of iron! The quality of the craftsmanship was excellent, as was the presentation and (earlier than estimated) delivery. Many thanks!"
