Biography:

My jewellery is designed and made to personal commission in 18ct gold and/or platinum using precious and semi-precious stones and often working with my clients’ own stones. The personal contact between the client and myself helps my design to capture their character and their lifestyle in these precious materials. This understanding creates a piece of jewellery that is exciting and yet comfortable and wearable and, for that person, a recognition of their individuality and style. My pieces demonstrate the use of strong but simple forms and a flow of line over the polished surfaces of gold, balancing within the design my creative ideas, the desires of the client and the handcrafting of such fine materials. My work involves the use of traditional techniques of jewellery making, as well as innovative ideas for fixings, mechanisms and stone setting, often making a piece adaptable for different occasions. Over the past thirty years my work has been commissioned and collected by a knowledgeable worldwide clientele and exhibited widely, in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America, Australasia and Japan.
