Ian Dun has been expertly hand-crafting jewellery using traditional techniques and materials since 1983. Regular exposure to jewellery from all eras for maintenance, restoration or re-designing has necessitated mastery of many diverse skills, rarely used and integrated in the modern age of mass production.
Combining modern and older manufacturing technologies with an appreciation of a broad range of stylistic genres, Ian creates jewellery that will maintain it’s character with regular wear and use, with the durability necessary to become heirlooms for the next generations.
Metals, fine gems and enamels with superior qualities are selected, and utilised with a perceptive understanding of their true nature.
Shape, form, texture, colour, tone, function, feeling and individuality are all considered during the design and construction process. Individual commissions and limited edition series are the culmination of the maker’s experience, skill, and design philosophy.
