I design and hand craft Silver Jewellery. I work mainly with .925 Sterling Silver. I also incorporate Copper and Brass in some pieces. I enjoy using quality gemstone cabochons, beads and dichroic glass. Recently I have been using Seashore 'found' objects such as Sea glass and slate, as they are in plentiful supply on the local beaches!
I like to make simple yet eye-catching and attractive Jewellery that people will take pleasure from looking at and wearing.
Degree in Textile Design, predominantly screen and digital printing but also hand knitting.
CAD skills, sewing skills, designer-maker e.g cushions, bags, cards, pictures, wall-hangings, scarves.
Predominantly animal / floral themes but very versatile.
My work is based on biological identity, our inner self exposed on our outer clothing. knitwear inspired by our D.N.A and biological make-up.
My work is inspired by the shape and movement of windmills. I enjoy bright colour and decorative pattern and my main processes are photo-etching and cold enamelling.
I love etching patterns onto silver and hand painting them with the fantastic colours with cold enamel.
