Neil Rayment's picture


I am an award-winning goldsmith trained in the traditional art of silversmithing through art college, apprenticeship, and self-employment. I have run my own business for over 25 years and have worked with many prestigious houses and individuals supplying one-off pieces, manufacturing on a large scale, and creating my own individual work.
COVID 19 has wreaked havoc through many creative industries mine devastatingly. I have to think of what is important now for my shop and my art, trained goldsmiths are few and far between.

Its important to me to pass on my knowledge my most recent jobs growth Wales apprentice now in her fourth year has won two prestigious golds out our UK wide trade awards. It is clear to me that in times like this the creative voice is paramount to recovery.

My drive now to reopening is to carry the torch for my trade, I have just recently opened my first shop, I was barely open two weeks before lockdown. My intention was to bring my expertise and knowledge to Cardiff, to create new works and continue to build a hub of excellence.

There is no jewellery heritage or quarter in Cardiff as in most major cities in the UK I would like to think that this was possible and will try to lay these seeds but I am aware that exposure is everything this seems the perfect place to start that.
