Biography:

Annie has worked as a designer and maker of jewellery for the last 15 years. Each season the designs alter subtly but a clear 'house style' is evident in all she produces.

Annie's collections are created in silver and gold, inspired by natural organic shapes and marine life. The emphasis is on three-dimensional form, exploring concave and convex shapes. Precious and sem-precious beads and stones incorporated within the collection to accentuate colour. All elements are hand-pressed and hand-finished. The composition and balance of each individual design is carefully considered and her range of products includes rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pendants and cufflinks. The theme of organic shapes can be traced right back to Annie's earliest work and she has a strong following of avid collectors. Annie works from her South London studio in Dulwich
