Set in a picturesque street on the riverside of the historic city of Durham - Ashcroft Jewellery Design is home to Andrew Ashcroft FIPG, Goldsmith and Jewellery Designer.

Bespoke Handmade Jewellery
Each piece is handmade by Andrew using a combination of traditional skills and modern technology. Over the years Andrew has developed a unique style of his own. Taking inspiration from nature he has become known for creating exquisitely detailed botanical designs using precious metals, diamonds and coloured gemstones.
Inspired by the beauty of nature's creation. Each design is engraved by hand and is unique. There are a wide selection of styles to chose from or if you have an idea we can work together to design something just for you.
Elegantly simple designs. Clean lines and pure forms combined to give a modern yet timeless look.
Jewellery making has a rich history of amazing design work to draw inspiration from. Ranging from Victorian decadence to Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Every era has added to our understanding of style.

Made For You
The majority of the jewellery I make is to commission. Whether that means a slight variation of an existing design or something created from scratch for you. Below are some videos to illustrate how the process works.
I will meet with you in person or via video chat to go over ideas and show you examples. While we I will draw a design for you and talk you through all of the options. There is no design charge and no obligation to proceed.
