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.

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!
(So hot off the workbench, they're not on the website yet!) ... See MoreSee Less
I like the earrings a lot! Will they always have a blue stone?
Massive fan. These are stunning...good job !
Beautiful and inspirational 💙
Lovely design & gorgeous.
Love these. They are a bit like sparkly octopus tentacles
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! ...

Hmmm, Rob Morris is definitely up to something... could it be a new range for Christmas?!
Don't worry, the elves will keep beady eyes on his bench! ... See MoreSee Less
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
Love this xx
It looks fab too!
Ooo... I'd have come to admire it close up if I'd have known..
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!
Only available in-store... but lots of other lovely designs online too... frontjewellery.com ... See MoreSee Less
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 😊

Whoops may have just made a cheeky purchase. Well if you can't treat yourself during lockdown when can you! x
Wonderful!! Just ordered Etna pendant and earrings. Thank you Rob...miss Front jewellery so much.💙
That's really stunning, and; here's a funny thing, I had scrolled far enough that I cut off the text before really looking at the picture. As I looked, and momentarily thought it was something on a much larger scale, I suddenly thought, "Oooh, that looks like Front Jewellery" Had to scroll back to confirm it.
What are the diamentions?

Hello Lovely Front Jewellery folk... thought you might like to see our favourite silversmith, Rob Morris, contemplating the knotty problem of Wood Henge! Rob is working hard designing a 4-seater workbench for jewellery lessons, when we're all allowed out again.
Stay safe, well and strong... we miss you and your strange requests in the shop for watch batteries and gold unicorns (which we don't do... just great, original handmade jewellery, now online only: frontjewellery.com)! ... See MoreSee Less
Make sure that bench is extra strong! People have been baking a lot in this lockdown! 😂😘
I’d like to find out info about doing a course when lockdown is over. Just what I need! 😃👍🏼
