I am a designer/maker constantly excited by the potential for design through jewellery and metalwork and the endless scope for freshness and beauty in the next idea. The medium is as old as civilisation itself and brings pleasure and confidence to the wearer. I draw inspiration from every aspect of daily life and experience.
The production of a piece from the raw precious metal and stones provides endless satisfaction. It permits the process to be part of the outcome and allows for unexpected innovation in technique. My present collection utilises the formation of finished shapes from the molten gold or silver cast in hand carved cuttlefish bone. The luxurious organic shapes of the final rings and neckpieces hark back to a memory of deep seas and vibrant decoration.
