Meet Small Ridge

 
I'm Wayne and I started Small Ridge 3 years ago when I realised my love of vintage watches and upcycling could actually work very well together. Since then I have been taking vintage wind up watches apart and using every single part to create beautiful one off pieces of men's and women's jewellery. 

Do you have a favourite product from your collection? 

  
I personally love the very first item I every made which is the watch mechanism cufflinks but my most popular piece of jewellery is the watch face bracelet. 
  
What inspires you? 

Giving broken or unloved watches a new life. 

What challenges have you had and how have you overcome them? 

Finding the watches in the first place, I had to advertise and speak to a lot of people. Now I have a long list of 'suppliers' 
  

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making things and selling? 

Start off small like a hobby if you can and take advice from other makers. 
 

If a friend or relative could describe you in one word what would it be? 
  
Persistent 

What are your future plans? Any new products, branding, selling platforms? 

To find new shops to sell in.
