Alan, who retired from the police force some thirty years ago, found silversmithing and making jewellery to be a very relaxing hobby.  His earlier apprenticeship as a fitter has given him the necessary skills to use many of the tools required.

With gold prices so high at present, he now concentrates on silver and makes a variety of necklaces, bracelets, bangles, and earrings.  He gains inspiration from trees and shrubs found locally on the East Sussex coast where he lives.

A speciality of his are pictures made from thin silver sheet which are mounted on black silk before being framed.  Another popular item is the chainlink twisted bracelet without a clasp, it is simply rolled on and off.
