I am a self taught jewellery designer/maker.
I draw inspiration from almost anything; nature, architecture, art, conversations and the material I use. Stones sometimes dictate a certain way of setting, but I love to experiment and also to see what happens if I let materials "do their own thing“. Often commissions inspire - they can be challenging, which I love, or there is so little/much in a customer’s brief that a lot of designing/creating is involved, which then can lead to new inspirations. Sometimes making mistakes creates something new and exciting too.
All my pieces are handmade one-off pieces, that are as unique as the people who wear them, and of as high a standard and quality as I can produce. My pieces might not be as perfect as some machine made ones, but they are made by a human being for human beings.
