"Handcrafted quality pieces with a foundation in traditional manufacturing techniques, built in a modern throw away society".
N.C. AUSTIN is a maker/owner operation run by Nick Austin Clifford. Nick started to make jewellery for his own enjoyment, and quickly realised the extent of his passion and interest in the process of working with precious metals. A great appreciation for well made products, made from quality materials, that were made to last far beyond our own lifetime is the foundation of all N.C. AUSTIN pieces. Nick takes great pride in offering products of substance in today's throw away society. He is constantly looking to the past for the foundation of his ideas, during a time when things were made by real people, made with intent, and made to last.
N.C. AUSTIN rings are hand carved, one at a time in the Sydney workshop. Predominantly cast in Sterling Silver, Brass, and Yellow and White Gold (9ct and 18ct). The silver used to create the pieces is 100% Australian Silver of the Sterling Standard (925).
