Designer

The Goldsmiths Company

Biography:

My work has developed around spheres – a form which is both complete, resolved and universally satisfying. I aim for my jewellery to attract at various points so there can be a different level of engagement from a distance to a more intimate level through hidden qualities or surprise elements. When designing for clients I put strong emphasis on engaging with them through drawings and models before constructing the final piece. Movement like rotation through complex assembly is a key element in some pieces.
