Classic and elegant artisan jewellery designed and created in my home studio using mainly silver, copper, pearls and gemstones. My jewellery is personally handmade giving each piece its uniqueness and originality. I play with different techniques; soldering, hand forging, fold forming, textures, and patinas to create contemporary beautiful pieces of jewellery. Recently I have taken to water and broom casting in silver resulting in very organic jewellery pieces.

My love of jewellery making started with a silversmithing course almost 20 years ago. It is amazing to see a piece of wire or sheet metal turn into a beautiful piece of jewellery. I enjoy the process of designing and creating beautiful jewellery. My inspiration comes from the many different shapes and textures I see around me.
