Biography:

I only work only in 22ct gold and semi-precious stones, which form a direct link with the ancient goldsmiths who used exactly the same materials.  My strongest influences are the jewels of the Ancient Near East, from deep antiquity to the end of the Roman Empire.  This influence extends from the wreath I made as a commission of the World Gold Council – Hellenistic period -  to the little twisted wire earrings in the Small Treasures collection – Mycenaen Greece - and everything in between.

I work alone, I design all my own pieces, and because I make everything myself, each piece is unique.  While I can revisit and repeat an idea, I will never be able to completely copy anything, which makes every item I make a one-of-a-kind treasure.
