Our Story

Once upon a time there was a little curly haired girl who liked climbing trees and hunting pixies and making stuff. In a strange kingdom, just east of London, she met a little hairy boy who liked wheels and fast things and making stuff and they liked each other so they hooked up.

One day they climbed aboard a shiny silver steed and rode to a land far far away where they were married amidst mountains and lakes and wilderness. Together, they realised, they could achieve wonderful things.

Welcome to the overactive imaginations of Jesa & Al Dickson........

Often, people comment on how we work together all the time ....apparently this is strange for married couples. We love it...we shut ourselves away in our sunny workshop in Dorset, put on some kicking sounds and get making! Once we have spent time studying and drawing our animals, checking their ‘movement’ and form, we then get totally absorbed for hours hand carving our wax models. These are then cast into silver or gold and become real beautiful creatures!

All of our jewellery is designed and hand crafted by us in the A Wolf and I workshop in sunny Dorset, UK.

We use only top quality Sterling Silver and Gold of all carats and colours (depending on the piece), which is hallmarked with the 'A Wolf and I' mark at the London Assay Office.

Our gemstones are sourced from all over the world and we particularly like to use ethically sourced gems and metals if possible.

We love to work to commission, creating individual pieces designed specifically for our customers. We create wedding rings, engagement rings, eternity rings, personal lockets, anniversary gifts....all sorts of everything! Life is never dull! - just ‘howl’ if you’d like to know more (or check out our commissions and Wedding Jewellery pages!)

As well as making jewellery we get a huge kick from teaching others how to work with precious metals too! We also run Flux'n'Flame Jewellery School in Dorset UK which is an independent school, set up by us in 2003. It is now a thriving centre for all things jewellery and we are so proud to pass on our passion to others.

Life's good :)

A Wolf and I is a true collaboration between two best friends who are passionate about their craft.
