Production of Cut Steel is thought to have begun in the 16th C. From 1750 decorative pieces began to appear, as "Stars for the nobility"  jewellery and hair adornments  among the designs and often combined with precious jewels . In the late 18thC a Birmingham manufacturer began major production creating cut steel shoe buckles to adorn the shoes of Georgian men and women. 

All Badger's Velvet jewellery is unique made using vintage pieces sourced acround the world then remodelled by our Oxford goldsmith or London silversmith creating beautiful contemporary pieces.
