Have you ever wondered just how Goldsmiths and Jewellers do what they do?

At Jesper Velling Jewellery we favour traditional jewellery making techniques, many of which haven’t changed for centuries, and for good reason!  Here we would like to share with you just some of  the design and manufacture processes we use in our workshop to make our bespoke jewellery.  If there is anything you’d like to know more about please do get in touch.  We are passionate about what we do and always welcome the opportunity to talk about it!

If you are visiting our studio for an appointment, on this page you can also find our recommendations for places to eat and stay, all of which have been tried and tested (in the name of research of course!)

Here you can also read about all our award-winning jewellery, latest news, designs and forthcoming events.

New Workshop!

Tired of the work commute, in 2014 we decided to embark on a somewhat crazy home/workshop project that we are pretty sure will keep us busy for the next 10 years!  The first job of the new move was to get the workshop up and running.  So, after lots of blood, sweat and tears, from this disused old stable block, the Workshop was formed!

The Duke William, Ickham – local, seasonal & traditional dining at it’s best! Beautiful guest rooms also available.

Gibsons Farm Shop & Cafe – serves food all day, we recommend the breakfast!

The Haywain, Bramling – a roast to rival even the wifes’!  Sunday booking advisable.  Accommodation also available.

Picturesque Whitstable

Heading back towards London just 6 miles north of Canterbury, no visit to Kent is complete without stopping at the seaside town of Whitstable.  Rich in maritime history and with a wonderful working harbour and fish market where you can find the famous Whitstable oysters!  After a walk along the seafront you’ll find a generous offering of quaint and quirky shops and restaurants.  Just don’t leave before sunset…you won’t be disappointed, the bay offers a real treat at this time!
