About Steve Wager
My “smithing” days began in a shed in East London. From there I stepped up to the rather more refined environment of Crown Jewellers Aspreys (later to become Asprey-Garrards) in London’s Bond Street, where over 25 years I mastered all the skills of the “across the board” gold/silversmith/jeweller, such as chasing, box making, forging, hammering, and raising.
SEW Ltd Gold/Silversmiths was launched in 2003. I am a Freeman of the City of London and the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths; A fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths; A fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
I love my work, whether I am crafting individually designed wedding rings, or mustering every bit of my expertise to transform the more elaborate gold/silverware imaginings of my customers into reality.
My ethos is simple: the highest level of technical expertise melded with flexibility and creativity. My creations are always unique, and always a matter of personal pride.
Over the years I have been the craftsman behind such prestigious projects as the Cricket World Cup, the Ryder Cup, trophies for the Royal Ascot races and repairs to the F A Cup! I have also created commissions for HRH the Prince of Wales and other members of the Royal Family; the Sultans of Brunei and Oman amongst other prominent clients.
As part of our Summer Of Silver Event, Steve Wager will be exhibiting with us Tuesday 13th – Saturday 17th August.
In the meantime he is kindly demonstrating “spoon bashing” in the shop with us this afternoon (Friday 7th June) where he takes a single small silver ingot and works it into a teaspoon before your very eyes.
And here’s a reminder of the line up for the summer.
