Fractal Bowl No 1.

Designed by Ryan McClean

Made from Fine silver. This bowl is inspired both by fractals and Fibonacci sequences.  I hope to create a sense of familiarity to nature using maths.

Designed by Frances Barkworth 

Made from Sterling silver set with a large Goldstone Cabochon. Necklace featuring pierced stargazing silhouettes against a goldstone sky. Made from sterling silver sheet, pierced to create a double sided pendant (plain goldstone on one side and stargazing silhouette on the other).

The Sheffield Assay Office was established in 1773, under an Act of Parliament and today the company assays and hallmarks the precious metals - silver, gold, platinum and palladium. Sheffield Assay Office is one of only four UK assay offices who all work to uphold the Hallmarking Act of 1973 and continue to ensure consumer protection for customers purchasing precious metals.
