I am continuing to run my father's business which he created in 1969. I am now the seventh generation to be involved in the Goldsmithing trade. My father taught me metalworking techniques from the age of six, my mother, an artist taught me how to draw in perspective and I attended the Sir John Cass School of Art and Design in Whitechapel, between 1976 and 1980, gaining Advanced City and Guilds and a Diploma in The Design and Craftsmanship of Jewellery. I was made a Freeman of the Goldsmith's Company in 1994 and granted the Freedom of the City of London in the same year. I started my own business, Mike Shorer Fine Jewellery in Essex in 1990 and took over Historic Jewellery Reproduction after Dad passed away in 2010. I have now linked the business with several more Museums, English Heritage and film and TV companies to make bespoke historically-themed pieces as well as replicating museum pieces using similar techniques to the ones Dad pioneered and perfected over 50 years ago.
