James Miller - Jewelry Gallery


I am a master goldsmith based in Surrey, England. I have been a working goldsmith for 43 years now. I served a six year apprenticeship under a master goldsmith and before setting up my own company “James Miller Design” back in 1985, I worked in London for a company making items for Asprey and Garrard. My work is varied and draws inspiration from flora and fauna using techniques of manufacture that have changed very little over the centuries. I work mainly in 18K gold and silver using hard fired enamels to add colour to my pieces. I mostly work to commission so each piece can be unique to the customer.

Clematis on rock crystal bowl

recently I was given a beautiful, carved rock crystal bowl by a customer who asked me to decorate it with some gold and enamelled flowers set with diamonds. The bowl was 14 inches wide, oval when viewed from above. I chose to make sprays of clematis flowers in mirror image on both sides of the bowl, appearing to grow from the base.
