Biography:

I create contemporary, striking, handmade items finished to a standard of excellence. The workshop is a barn conversation situated in rural North Somerset. My staff are all very experienced in the trade and we pride ourselves in using traditional tools and silversmithing techniques. James Kydd continues to thrive as my apprentice and has won his second prestigious award in the Goldsmiths Craft & Design competition. I work predominately in gold and silver, incorporating a variety of shapes and designs including trillion boxes with semi-precious stone set, radiance bowls and flying saucer candle sticks. As a keen sailor my passion is my lifelong love of the sea, this inspires my pieces giving them an elegant and graceful form.
