I am a jewellery designer and maker based in Bristol. Following graduation from Loughborough University in 2003 with a BA Hons in Jewellery and Silversmithing, I moved to Bristol to work in the workshop of an awarding winning jeweller. In 2005 I set up my own jewellery business designing and creating my own collection, which I display and sell online, and through a selection of galleries and exhibitions.
My jewellery is not based on one particular theme or idea but has been a natural development of a variety of interests and influences. Each piece of my work is hammered by hand to create unusual textures and shapes, giving my work a unique and individual quality. I work mainly in silver to create versatile, wearable pieces for everyday adornment alongside one- off commissions in a variety of precious metals
I want to make pieces that will last, that will be enjoyed and that will mean something to its owner.
