Biography:

Working intuitively, I take inspiration from beautiful stones, objects and artefacts found on my travels.  These ideas are then interpreted in 18-carat gold and silver, diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones.  Using traditional methods I create highly individual pieces of jewellery harking back to a time when every piece was handmade.  Much of my work has an 'old' quality about it, some with an almost 'dug-up' feel.  Others have an almost faery tale charm.  My work is art for the body and soul with every range having a story of origin; it is about the love of jewellery and the art of wearing it.

My stacking rings and bangles are often forged lending each piece its own unique, roughly-hewn appearance. They can be fashioned from clients’ own jewellery, transforming much-loved family pieces into beautiful new, individual designs.  However, it is my chains and charms that form the centre of the collection.
