Daniel Gallie at work in his studio

Born in Wales, studied in Italy at the Istituto d’Arte Piero Della Francesca in Arezzo, where I obtained a diploma in Applied Arts. Specialising in jewellery production, I then went on to vocational training in jewellery making, which led me to work for various high-end jewellery companies in Tuscany.

By working on production and working as a model maker, I gained experience and knowledge of the trade. In 2001 I started to work as a designer, collaborating with Cesare del Brenna creating fashion collections for numerous other companies in Firenze, I gained knowledge of fashion design and industrial production techniques.
In 2003 I moved to London and started working for various Jewellers specialising in bespoke pieces and small collections.

In 2008 I established my own brand with the aim to create new elegant and modern jewellery for women and men. All pieces combine striking designs to every day comfort.

My work is strongly influenced by nature and my travels, the pieces are modelled in sculptural organic shapes. I work in Gold and Silver using traditional jewellery techniques combined to modern challenging shapes.
All my work is bespoke or handmade in small collections , produced and hallmarked in the UK.

LOST WAX CASTING

Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is one of the oldest  methods of metal casting. It dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has sustained few changes since then. A wax model is placed into a casting flask and refractory plaster is poured around it. The flask is baked so that the plaster hardens and the wax melts and drains away. Molten metal is poured into a mould that has been created obtaining a metal replica of the wax.  The metal is released from the mould, filed to obtain a clean surface and then completed by polishing.
