My jewellery is organic and tactile with most of my inspiration taken directly from nature, primarily seed pods. I use silver, 18ct gold and silk paper to create my jewellery, which is constructed from individual acorn cup and daisy units assembled to create both large and small scale pieces of jewellery.
Using fine silver and 24ct gold, I have created a collection of pod vessels and bowls, which are all hand raised from flat sheets of metal. The vessels are constructed to be free standing and off centre, giving them a fluid natural quality. I have created silk paper models that are viewed and exhibited alongside their silver counterparts.

Working with Hallmarked sterling silver and handpicked semi precious stone, my work is influenced by Pictish and Celtic designs which were inspired by nature. I have focussed on plant life; the spirals of ferns and vines, stylised leaves and patterned and textured silver to imitate stone and bark.
