It’s still a mystery to me exactly how inspiration works in designing and making my jewellery. My work has been described as ‘classic but edgy’ and this aptly captures both my love of elegant, clean-lined forms and a taste for things asymmetric.
I make predominantly in sterling silver, using traditional bench skills to form handmade pieces from sheet, wire and chenier. My range of silver and gemstone necklaces incorporates elements cast from my own handmade silver originals, often combining them with unusual gemstone beads as featured in this collection.
From my first evening-class encounter with a soldering torch twelve years ago, I was hooked on designing and making jewellery. Now it is my full-time business. I am based in a shared workshop in Stratford, east London, a stone’s throw away from the Olympic Park and my work is on display at the JeDeCo gallery at the Oxo Tower in London.
