I'm still learning and my love is gemstones, wirework, clay work, enamelling, metalwork and of the jewellery I make my kilt pins and Angels I love making the most. When I first started in 2007 no one made kilt pins made into brooches now many do so I copyrighted my designs in January 2014

I can attempt any design you wish to have made or discuss with me a design I could make
