About Epona Smith

Epona Smith is a London based jeweller and hand-engraver, who specialises in traditional, Italian hand-push engraving.

She discovered her passion for hand-engraving in Florence, Italy and skilfully merges the classic European technique elements with a sophisticated oriental attitude.
