We are Lee & Sé and we opened Da Capo in October 2000. We love old fashioned traditional hand techniques and high tech cutting edge technology, and explore everything in between. We are happy making period vintage pieces, traditional pieces with loving detail, crisp modern contemporary, or wild avant garde. We love not knowing what style the next piece we will make is, as it depends entirely on our customer (you).
Da Capo itself is a direction used in musical notation instructing to repeat again from the beginning. So everything we make starts with us putting pencil to paper in our studio, whether it is for ready-made pieces in our store or bespoke commissions tailored to the individual.
Since 2013 both of us have been involved in teaching courses in bench skills at the School of Jewellery, as well as occasional classes in gem setting and CAD modelling.
