“I have been designing and hand making my jewellery from a workshop in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter for nearly 10 years and recently completed a Masters degree in ‘Jewellery & Related Products’.
My first award was presented by Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA) at ‘New Designers’ and launched my career and first jewellery collection. I have subsequently been awarded: The Worcester Guild of Designer Craftsmen Alan Knight Award, The Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft Graduate Award, The Goldsmiths’ Fair Graduate Award and The International Jewellery London (IJL) High Street by Design Award.
Publications of my work can be seen in ‘Showcase 500 rings’ curated by Bruce Metcalf and in ‘The guide to gemstone settings; styles and techniques’.
My jewellery designs take inspiration from natural forms and the environment these forms are found in. I enjoy creating simple, delicate and feminine shapes from precious metals. I design my jewellery collections by experimenting in folding and manipulating paper. I translate my paper experiments into silver and gold paying particular attention to colour and texture, making every piece by hand.”
