The Patina Collection is a wonderful partnership our London based patina artist Derek Bayley, who is personally dedicated to the individual quality and refinement of each piece. Derek specialises in patina work for art and sculpture. Based near us in Deptford, South East London, his work is a true combination of art and science.
Patina (in its broadest sense) implies weathering, the effects of time and the changing states of metals as they are exposed to the elements. The art of patina however comes from celebrating the natural effects of this atmospheric exposure and embracing the changing colours and textures that occur. It’s about viewing discolouration and imperfection as a beautiful evolution of a material rather than a negative change. Each cufflink is hand crafted by Derek, one by one, so no two pieces will ever be the same. Read more here
