I am influenced by the simple lines of geometric forms and create contemporary designs made predominantly in silver.
I team the silver with non-precious materials, which often have a completely different use, thus changing them into wearable items of jewellery. Currently I am using hand-dyed birthday candle holders and cable ties in my 'Flower' series of jewellery.
I provide courses in spinning, dyeing, knitting and crochet and do fibre and yarn-based craft work for sale in galleries, exhibitions and via my website.
I also sell silks for spinners, dyes for craft workers and write books about textile crafts. I make hand woven scarves, knitted wire jewellery and hand dyed items for sale.
I am teaching at the Association of Weavers Spinners & Dyers summer school in Edinburgh in August 2011, and often do workshops for guilds in Scotland.
I have the certificate of Achievement in Hand spinning and many years experience of teaching.
I specialise in Carrickmacross lace and embroidery and will demonstrate or teach either.
