Biography:

I make one-off pieces of jewellery, using traditional goldsmithing techniques. I combine silver with high carat gold or palladium and use a matte finish to give a soft, tactile look and feel to my clean, symmetrical designs. As well as using gemstones as highlights in my pieces, I sometimes use less precious minerals, such as slate, whose textures add interest and depth. The designers and artists of the Bauhaus movement have been a key influence on my work.

Specialist Techniques:

Combining different precious metals and using traditional goldsmithing techniques.

Education:

1980-1982  City and Guilds Diamond Mounting, Sir John Cass School of Art. 1987-89 Certificate of Jewellery and Allied Crafts, Sir John Cass School of Art
