Biography:

I strive to produce beautifully-made simple, elegant and contemporary pieces which are easily wearable today and will remain so for years to come. Many pieces feature tactile and mobile elements, the jewellery being transformed and given life and dynamism by the wearer.

I love to experiment with new ideas and work in a very practical hands-on way with the materials, developing ideas by looking at the subtle delicate colours of precious metals by using unusual gold-plating techniques, oxidisation, vitreouss enamelling and adding precious stones. The sensitive use of surface textures witha simplicity of form keeps the design sophisticated and unfussy.

Specialist Techniques:

Enamelling
Gold-plating
Photo-etching
Rolling/texturing
