Member Profile: Damian Miles
Damian Miles is a jeweller, goldsmith, silversmith, gemmologist, jewellery valuer and pearl stringer with over 20 years experience.
He loves to create one of a kind and limited run pieces of jewellery, silverware and luxury objects. He also offers a jewellery repair and re-stringing service to the trade and public.
Damian loves the variety that his work enables him to have. One day he could be making an engagement ring to a customers design, the next jewellery repairs and re-stringing and then valuations of jewellery or coins or making a custom knife sheath. He enjoys working with baroque pearls as they offer the customer a unique piece. It’s simply great!
HIs inspirations are drawn from many avenues, from nature to mythology, science fiction to everyday objects. I have a fascination with symbols and symbology, which is sometimes evident in my work. Being based in Okehampton,
He is lucky enough to have Dartmoor on my doorstep, a great place to take a moment and beautiful whatever the weather. He designs and makes pieces that he likes, and these vary greatly in style and function.
He started in the jewellery trade full time in 1992 with Gerry and Co. of Newton Abbot, Devon, but was making and repairing jewellery before then. Whilst there he learnt about many aspects of jewellery, watches, clocks and silverware. He achieved his Retail Jewellers Diploma from the National Association of Goldsmiths’.
For any luxury item.
It’s not just handmade jewellery. Damian also has an extensive range of Antique and Vintage Jewellery as well as Coins and Banknotes.
Whether you need a bespoke piece made, a repair, valuation or a special gift, please feel free to get in touch with Damian.
