Guy and Menna Morey
Home | Craftsmanship
Guy has always been fascinated with minerals and gemstones,
having amassed quite a collection by the time he had
left school. It was a natural progression from collecting
gemstones to setting them in jewellery and he made his
first single faceted stone ring at the age of 14. By
16 years old he was already designing and manufacturing
jewellery for friends and relations.
Menna is a natural artist and sculptor
with an enduring love of the Art Nouveau and Celtic
styles. She specialises in hand-formed jewellery and
enjoys combining sculpture techniques in jewellery manufacture,
carving miniature and detailed designs.
They started the business known as G&M
Jewellery in 1978 to provide well-made, affordable jewellery
to individual designs. This was a natural progression
from their College days, where they both gained qualifications
in 3-dimensional design with an emphasis on jewellery
design and manufacture.
Their first situation was demonstrating
design and manufacture in an open workshop environment
at a local craft centre. As news of their unique blend
of individual design and high quality workmanship spread
the business went from strength to strength, rapidly
developing a loyal customer base, and G&M moved
into the premises 123 High Street, Ryde in 1982.
