John Mayo - Jade

I am Hamilton born and bred and was educated at Hamilton Tech before beginning a Jewelry Apprenticeship in 1966 and qualifying in 1971.

I went out ‘on my own’ in 1973 doing repair work in a small workshop and in 1987 we bought Frankton Jewelers, still doing repair work and selling one off pieces of jewelry.

In 2019 I ‘retired’ and began working for Sands Carving Studio where I enjoy being creative in fashioning both silver and gold settings and enhancements for their high quality pounamu pieces.
