Professional Jewellery CAD Designer
I am the owner and operator of Starfield CAD, where I provide 3D jewellery design as well as product visualisation and rendering to clients around the world.
In 2003 I started my apprenticeship as a jeweller. Working through my qualifications as a jeweller has given me all of the traditional bench skills and more, such as repairing, restoring, hand-making, master pattern and mould production, designing, selling, and batch manufacturing.
Seeing the power and potential of CAD and how it was starting to revolutionise the industry, I seized the opportunity to take these bench skills and apply them to the digital design aspect of jewellery manufacture. Since that decision, I have worked for a premier jewellery house as their head CAD designer, always expanding my knowledge and pushing the boundaries of possibility.
