to your specification and requirements.
David Martin has been
carrying out repairs now for over twenty years, and in that time
has worked on every type of repair. Every week David is asked
to take care of ring sizings, rhodium plating and general repairs.
We pride ourselves on our quick turnover (same day service also
available) and now, keeping up with the latest technology, we
have purchased a PUK 3 welding device that can perform the finest
welds under a microscope with minimum heat, making close welding
next to stones a simple and problem-free procedure. All this,
plus cheaper prices and no ‘middle-man’, means that
your jewellery has never been in safer hands.
Any item whatever size,
will be undertaken, although larger items may take a little longer
and it may be necessary to leave the item with us for a day or
Antiques & Restoration:
is a speciality of ours and we are proud to offer you a service
second to none.
One of the first things
David was ever trained to do as a Silversmith was how to restore
antique silver and gold. His apprenticeship to Brian Fuller taught
him all the skills and problems that might occur when restoring
the finest of antiques. Today David has a large client base of
antique dealers who come to him for restoration of antiques before
re-sale. David has restored many large centre pieces for the Military
and for private clients; no job too small or too big for our workshop.
Over his many years
working as a silversmith David has made many one-off silver centrepiece
commissions, mainly for the Army and Navy, but also for McClaren’s.
These include a 2ft replica of the Millennium Dome and a 3ft replica
of the Staff College (Sandhurst). David has also made a silver
Challenger Tank, a Range Rover and a Fuchs vehicle. The most challenging
being a 15” Frigate Ship owing to the amount of silver rigging
and fine detail. More recently, David has made four model replicas
of the Concorde for private clients, in his Lightwater workshop.
His most recent replicas are the Skynet 5 Satellite and Boeing
