Our Processes

At Alice Made This we are proud to work with British factories, our first of which was our Aerospace factory and its precision turned metal process typically used to manufacture aeroplane parts and components for a whole range of engineering industries. Inspired and informed by industrial processes, we work with expert makers across the country to design products stemming directly from their engineering techniques. Working predominantly with copper, silver, gold, rose gold, brass and steel, our collections are driven by the raw materials and human elements behind our factory doors.

Whether it’s our Aerospace part manufacturer or our Military armoury, we have close relationships with all our factories and are continually learning from their processes. For example, our Silversmith collection is hand made in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter from solid silver, with each piece hand worked and stamped with the Birmingham Hallmark. Our Formula One cufflinks are bulletproof, harder than steel and have to be cut with diamond impregnated blades. Our Nanotechnology pieces are electroplated with precious metals using a process that is usually reserved for the electronics industry. Behind each piece of Alice Made This jewellery, there is a story, a precise level of technical detail and an engineered simplicity.Learn more and enjoy some behind the scenes shots of our processes below.

copper cufflinks Our Aerospace cufflinks are barrelled using a tri star ceramic stone. This gives a mottled or antiqued effect. This collection was inspired by geo-technical movement and coastal erosion. We have replicated Attrition using this industrial technique.

brass cufflinks Each cufflink is carefully transported on a soft rubber belt after being precision turned at our Aerospace factory.
