Bespoke Lapidary Projects

From a practicing Lapidaries point of view these stones are a challenge, the challenge being “what would this look like once it cut and polished”. This is exactly what we do here at Stamford lapidary.

Have you ever wandered along a pebble beach, walked through a gravel car park, been walking in the fields or sitting by a stream and noticed an interesting stone and picked it up and brought it home with you? Many times that stone will just sit in a drawer and very rarely see the light of day again.

I have done this many times in all kinds of places, some of the stones have had interesting patterns or colours which catch my imagination.

It’s nice to be able to say that 99% of the stones we find can be polished and most often end up being used by Shalini in her Jewellery designs.

It’s worth keeping in mind that it’s not just the well known stones like Amethyst, Rose Quartz and various other well known semi-precious stones that make eye catching jewellery, we have made many fine pendants from pebbles and flints that we have found when out and about and because of the materials we have used they are all the more unique.

We would like to offer this service to you, after all not everybody has all the equipment needed in their workshop to do this kind of work.

All you need do is drop us a line and let us know roughly what you have got and what you would like done with it and we will take care of the rest.

We are located in Stamford, Lincolnshire but we can do this work for anyone anywhere in the world.
