I create Hand Carved and Painted Pictish designs on slate, glass and paper.
All my jewellery is made from treasure washed up on Angus beaches. Positve up-cycling at it's best.
With the help of coloured golds silver precious and semi precious stones I attempt to create wearable bits and pieces of decoration for the body which also I hope, will be food for the soul.
I have always had an interest in collecting vintage and antique jewellery, and the Art Deco period inspires some of my jewellery designs.
My jewellery pieces are made using gem-stones, pearls, and artist-torched lampwork glass beads. I design many classic styles, Art Deco being an influence, but I also use organic earthy beads for more unusual modern pieces.
My jewellery is unashamedly decorative, taking its influences from floral imagery and patterns and demonstrating my personal interest in the styles and motifs of Art Nouveau and Art Deco. Many pieces in the range recapture the femininity of the time, whilst updating it with a contemporary twist to create a new interpretation.
I work mainly in silver, enamel and a speckly effect enamel! Work is very contemporary but I love my work to be worn on a daily basis so it is very practical. Its best described as colourful.
My work is mainly made from silver and 9ct gold although very often I incorporate other materials such as cold enamel, perspex and stones. The inspiration for my jewellery is drawn from many different sources such as traditional Mexican symbolism, sealife and tarot cards, sometimes even sweets! I like to see my jewellery worn so for these reasons I like to keep it simple but at the same time eye-catching and the splash of colour I often add works very well for this!
