Welcome to the sealmaker.com, the website for Neil Oliver, world class engraver and master craftsman. With over 45 years of experience to trade this site makes Neil's skills as an engraver available directly to you.
I have been working as a hand engraver in my own business since 1964, from which time I have endeavoured to create a workshop unique in Great Britain, learning as many skills in the field of engraving to the highest level.
I studied under master engraver the late Mr. Sid Perkins at the School of Jewellery faculty at the University of Central England in Birmingham achieving a distinction in the City and Guilds Advanced Craft qualification. On Mr. Perkins retirement in 1978 I followed in his footsteps as the engraving lecturer at the school of jewellery, developing the City and Guilds course and training many students in engraving skills.
During my time there I achieved Senior Lecturer status and also became a fellow and founder member of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths before leaving in 1989 to pursue my own business interests once more.
Throughout my career I have continued to study the different aspects of the engravers art and have amassed a broad range of skills to offer a rare complete engraving service to an extremely professional standard, from lettering and line engraving to seal engraving on both stone and gold signet rings; though gun engraving die-sinking and ring carving to copper wheel glass engraving. I believe that it is always possible to continue to learn and to perfect the skills I have acquired.
