Biography:

My main passion has always been my own designs, which come from nature and the environment. The joy of silversmithing for me is the transformation of a sheet of metal and taking it to a form which is both rewarding to make and a pleasure to own. My work often employs the techniques of chasing and repousse, and is always entirely handmade.

Specialist Techniques:

Chasing Gilding Hand Raising Repousse
