Arthur and Georgie Gaskin worked as illustrators before turning to jewellery in 1899. They lived and worked in Birmingham - the centre of the jewellery trade in England - where as members of the Arts and Crafts Movement they pioneered alternative design and hand-made work very unlike the commercially produced jewellery being made around them. Although they always exhibited their jewellery under their joint names, contemporary accounts note that Georgie designed the jewellery, Arthur did the enamels, and the pieces were executed by both with the help of their assistants.
