Inspired predominantly by the landscape of Scotland; from coast to highland, my designs are built on repetition of the intricate patterns that are rooted in these environments. My interest in this area has lead to research into the art of story telling in the form of music and song, to produce jewellery that represents more than just the landscape but tells the story of the setting in which it is situated.
The main structures of my jewellery are made from precious metals; colour and contrasted is then introduced through the use of pearls and gemstones. To convey a sketch like quality in my work the repeated patterns are pierced by hand.
