Chris Parry graduated with a BA in Silversmithing Jewellery and Allied Crafts taught by The Cass Faculty of Art Architecture and Design in 2004.

Always wanting to work for himself, Chris resigned his job managing over 100 people for a restaurant chain and on the advice of his wife, Rita, sold his car to pay for his degree.

Fourteen years on, his business, run from rural Kent with two full-time members of staff, is on track to produce a half million pound turnover producing bespoke and handmade jewellery.
