It's not often Rob Morris creates something by accident... but it turns out that the latest addition to his new range - the Flow ring - can be stacked! Two together (in this case a garnet and peridot) look blingtastic!

UPDATE ON OUR TROLL: A horrified manager at his company has apologised unreservedly. We can only imagine words have been had as the post is down!
At a time when high street retail is in crisis, it is incredibly upsetting to find our little local business the victim of a nasty troll. We received an email from someone we didn't know asking commercially-sensitive questions. When politely asked for more information, the correspondent was disparaging and extremely rude. The same chap has since given us a bad and very unfair Google review (we've been lucky enough to only ever receive 5-star ones to date, THANK YOU!). With a small amount of sleuthing, the arrogant and bitter culprit has been unmasked as an estate agent, and his bosses contacted. Hopefully the review will come down... in the meantime, if you have a fair review you've been meaning to add, please don't hesitate - we're nothing without our lovely customers! 💕💕💕 ...

So sorry to hear this. People will recognise a toxic review I'm sure.
Wow! An estate agent doing dastardly deeds of underhand fabrication of the truth???...you do surprise me. Top sleuthing.
I am bedecked in FABULOUS Rob Morris jewellery and still want more.....xxxx
As you may have seen yesterday, Rob Morris appears to have a knack for attracting the birds... some of them even come back (SOUND UP). ... See MoreSee Less
Put your hat on. She thinks you've got her egg on your neck.
Preparing for opening Front Jewellery again after lockdown, Rob Morris was hassled by a very insistent visitor... well, diamonds are a gull's best friend.

No face mask...no entry...!! 😂
A quick preview of the first pieces from Rob Morris' new range, Flow.
It's inspired by bubbles!
Very Whitstable (where he lives and works) which is colloquially known as... The Bubble...
But also a reminder of our closest family and friends with whom we've formed bubbles this difficult year.
Stay safe and well!

Rob Morris loves making commitment rings, it's such a special honour to be chosen to create something so significant for the happy couple, Neil and Tracey!
This engagement ring is inspired by one of Front Jewellery's choicest original designers, the wonderfully talented Paul Finch (paulfinchjewellery.com)... but Rob has added his own spin and then paired it with an interlocking wedding ring - how aptly symbolic for joining two people together! ...

Wow, that is the best I've seen. Absolutely fab Rob 😄😎

Funny old world!
You wait ages for one and two come along...
A couple of posts ago, the lovely Lorraine is showing off one of Rob's rarest designs...
Well, he duly crafted a replacement for this unusual solid silver ring, and a few days later, along comes Tig to fall in love with it and redeem her gift voucher... AND enjoy some seafood at the Native Oyster Stores while she was here!
As local resident Harry Hill would say:"What're the chances?"

That’s a lovely ring x
Ooo... I'd have come to admire it close up if I'd have known..
Love this xx
This is just a HUGE heartfelt thank you!
It's been a tough time for many small businesses having to shut over Easter and early summer, and many are struggling in these strange Covid-infused times. Whilst July was quiet for us as people tentatively found their way around re-entering public spaces, August has been extraordinary, with return customers visiting us in droves. Rob is humbled and grateful for the love you've shown his work and that of the designers he supports here at Front Jewellery, both in-store and online.
To all our wonderful customers old and new, thank you so much for keeping this independent business afloat during such a difficult time.
Buoyed by your kindness, Rob's now hard at work designing a new range for Christmas! ... See MoreSee Less
Lovely shop and people x
So looking forward to seeing the Christmas range xx
A great big topaz glitters from this gorgeous one-off solid silver beauty, hot off Rob Morris' Whitstable workbench!

A lovely visit today from regular customer, Lorraine, who fell in love with this one-off ring... and when you've got such divine nails, why wouldn't you set them off with this chunky solid oxidised silver beauty, handmade by Rob Morris?!
Her husband was also taken with Rob's 'Flame' ring, but it was 5 sizes too small... cue a nerve-wracking 20 minutes as Rob stretched it gently and gradually to a perfect fit, phew!

And below is the 'Flame' ring chosen by the lovely Dave 🔥❤️👌
Absolutely love the ring and it’s a perfect fit x
The Tale of the Biggest Ring in the World!
When our customer, Caroline, said she and her husband would like new wedding rings, little did Rob imagine he'd be making the largest ring ever, so large it's literally off the scale! A ring sizing stick goes up to Z+5... Caroline's husband is Z+... 9! You can see some of the stages of making in the videos posted in the comments section. (The ring is a solid silver band which Rob forms then textures, and to which he then solders two bars of gold before oxidising the whole ring to create a contrast between the surface levels.) ...

That’s a lovely ring, you are very talented Rob......sorry I didn’t mean that to sound like I’m surprised lol

There is a history of big rings... www.shanespeal.com/blog/blog/circus-freaks-the-rings-of-giant-kings
Having bought Rob's amazing sterling silver Double D-Waves ring, a customer from Gillingham fancied a matching bangle. When Rob sent the photo on the left of a hand-forged, custom-made piece... she couldn't resist this sinuous, solid silver beauty - made-to-measure. She received it in the post within 24 hours and was so delighted she sent a photo of her matching set! Thanks, Caroline!
(Not everything's available online, that's why we're always worth a visit here in Whitstable! )

I always loved the simple elegance of those pieces.
Funny how you can see something one way, then out of the blue (topaz!) see it afresh. And that's exactly what The Mischievous Silversmith, Rob Morris did today...
Ordinarily, his beautiful stack rings allow you to wear the pear-shaped stone upwards or downwards... but making a new one, he suddenly thought it might look good set sideways... and it really really does!
A great bit of seaside cool on a blisteringly hot day!

Sunday? A day of rest? Never! Creativity seldom rests, and Rob's beavering away at his Whitstable workbench creating an Ador ring with a solid gold heart, to sit with a solid silver topaz stack ring... have a look in the comments section for the finished pieces!

Just like the ones you made for me, really great to see them being made. Thanks Rob and Fenella 😊
A new starfish is born!

We know Facebook will be swarming with photos of early imbibers, but obviously we're hard at work... can't be helped if the landlord pops over the road to deliver the first pint pulled on this momentous day! Thanks, Tony! @thedukewhitstable ... See MoreSee Less
