I suppose there was always going to be a twist, but I  making something exceptional out of the mundane is what a craftsman does.

It's traditional fine handwork. The only odd thing about it was the material source - there's no reason why that couldn't have been made from roundstock.

It was interesting to see how the stone was set, something I wish I'd asked an old friend(who was a goldsmith) before he died.

Yes, the fabrication method shown is rapidly being replaced by castings. The disabled jeweller is certainly very accomplished.

I've done quite a bit of claw setting, and hand fabricated quite a few collets in my time.

Here are some simple earrings I made a few months ago and took a photo of:


ETA: The photo was there for about ten minutes, but now isn't.

Can highly recommend other videos by him . He does the lost wax investment casting bit..
One of his things is to laser engrave finger prints of the customer into the inside of the ring.

I am surprised that a jeweller like that would contaminate his workshop with brass. In Birmingham's jewellery quarter, you can see jewellers working with gold, saving every scrap of filed or scraped gold, even recovering gold from hand washing.

Speedy Builder...

I too was surprised .

He works in gold and platinum but seems to show none of the "hygiene" over swarf seen in the gold trade.

Just watch his investment casting station.. foundry is too small a word.

This guy might find the fiddling about with swarf Vs time not worth it....lucky guy

The little old lady who taught me how to use a piercing saw would have had an apron fastened under the bench to catch filings, swarf and any waste. The raw materials would have been weighed on being issued to her at the start, and everything, filings swarf etc together with the finished product weighed again at the end. Any discrepancy over a certain limit was subject to a deduction in wages. As regards cross contamination, I think even the different carats in gold where kept separate certainly Silver would have been kept away from Gold. Her tools were spotlessly clean, particularly her files. She also made clock and watch hands. Her tools for steel were kept separate from those for precious metals She was a very interesting lady to talk to. She worked as a young girl in Birmingham

Look under the draw in the opening couple of seconds he has a metal tray to catch swarf, you can see it several times during the video

I believe he is also an Olympic Swimmer, Gold in 2000 in the Paralympics.

For some reason, jewellers never call precious metal filings etc. swarf; they/we call it lemel.

A very proficient artistic craftsman at work, a fine piece of jewellery.

Here's a link for Pablo

In this I see a more plausible birth date of 1976... The previous wiki suggested 1957...

Just be clear
The chap is Pablo Cimadevila Alvarez

I don't know where the link to Sebastian Rodreguez Veloso posted by jon laws came from but maybe the comments about dodgy past need review/moderation

Mods Edit. Posts about the wrong man have been removed.

He made it from two nuts, because that was what he was asked to do, per the messaging in the 'WHY' bit at the end of the video.

Beautiful workmanship, particularly considering the humble source materials, which I expect was the whole raison d'etre.

And if you have trouble sleeping or want to know what the Australian outback looks like and like trains this mind numbing offering is what you need - this is possibly the abridged version and the Indian pacific offering is even longer as it is a three day trip ! Enjoy !

Anyone like to try making one?

Another one to Goggle is "most useless machine" responds in many forms of much the same device, mostly wood or plastic construction but I'm sure a design could be replicated in metal.
