Biography:

Architectural details, proportion and line are very important aspects to my work; I find architectural forms and urban landscapes fascinating. My work combines silver and 18ct gold, and I emphasise the colour contrast by using a matt finish. With some pieces I further accentuate the difference by using a polished surface.  I incorporate high quality diamonds to “punctuate” my work and add definition. My new ring collection is a natural progression from the very desirable silver collection with gold and diamond detailing and .  The new rings are in 18ct white and yellow gold, and platinum, incorporating aqua marines, peridot and green garnets, and stunning diamonds. Along side I have designed a new collection of pendants and brooches, in 18ct gold and coloured stones to match the ring collection. All work is made in my studio in Herefordshire, which is open by appointment, or during Open Studios.
