My work is influenced by what I see around me, living here in Scotland, and the way in which I view my environment. The way we view our surroundings, becomes a personal and individual experience as each of us view it differently. One which constantly evolves as either our view of our surroundings alters, or the actual change in our surroundings.
Contemporary jewellery that summarises Scotland in a unique fashion is what inspires me. I visit specific places around Scotland, by recording my visits through drawings and photography I design my jewellery related to them. By using materials such as photographs and resin in my work I attempt to create ‘little worlds’ in my pieces.
Photography plays a large part of my work, the photographs which are used in my work relate to each other in each piece. Using specific ranges of colours in each of my pieces allows me to alter the finished outcome. Whether it be a piece specific to Glasgow in muted greys, or piece about Loch Lomond in luxurious greens. I enjoy making pieces which are both strong yet feminine with the use of strung pearls and stones. By incorporating different gem stones I add specific details, whilst adjusting the mood of each piece to suit the selected imagery.
