"Over the years I have given all of my family & many of my friends a piece of Mac’s jewellery & they have all been very happy to receive such a special & unique gift." – Leanne Smyly September 2012
"Over the past 20 years that I have known Mac, he has produced many, many beautiful & precious pieces to satisfy my jewellery obsession. My requirements are usually very specific & he has never failed to come up with something that is even better than what I had in mind. His craftsmanship is top class, each piece is made to last a lifetime, no matter how delicate & his knowledge of what will work & what won’t is always very greatly appreciated."
"I travel the world, why did I choose Mac? - Mac made it easy" – Garry McConnell May 2011
"I wanted a piece of artwork / jewellery that was original. It had to incorporate elements that I manufacture in my factory in China. Titanium, Carbon, Nickel, and Iron and of course Gold for success. Mac came up with some ideas, together we worked through some concepts and then he put it all together. What I got was an original necklace that integrates aspects of my life. The really great thing I like is that the pieces is too difficult to be copied - so I know that it is 100% unique - just like my industrial designs - just like me!"
"It's taken three years to find someone to edge the shell .Mac has done it , it adds dignity." – Megha Mar 2011
Megha arrived with a very beautiful Onion Skin bailer shell which she wanted to use as a receptical to hold and pour water ,we lined the edge of the shell with pure silver, otherwise known as fine silver which is .999 pure, and fashioned a pouring lip out of sterling silver, all this was a very delicate operation as the shell is so soft and brittle. After quite a few hours the operation was succesfully completed making Megha extremely happy.Her comment:
"It's exactly the way I dreamed it" – Rhonda Mar 2011
Rhonda came to us with the picture of the ceramic jug [see photo] and an opal she had been given many years ago, she asked us to make a gold pendant incorporating the design of the female figure on the jug , we carved the figure in wax and showed it to Rhonda for her approval, she agreed that the stylised rendition of the female figure suited the jewellery piece. The next step was to make the pendant using gold from an old sapphire ring she no longer wore .Rhonda's comment when we took the photo of her wearing it."
"Thanks very much I LOVE my new ring" – Susie Feb 2011
Susie has been the proud owner of a lovely 1ct blue Ceylon sapphire ring for quite some time , she asked me to remake it into something even more special for an occasion , we looked at ruby and pink sapphires as an addition and finally settled on a green and a white sapphire to best compliment the existing blue sapphire.
