There is a dramatic element to his work enhanced by the use of a wide variety of media, frequently combining a diversity of materials. Leather may be allied with gold leaf, ink with aluminium, flotsam and architectural salvage with acrylic colours.

I hand make contemporary jewellery which echoes the past.
I love collections of old objects like in junk shops, attics and museums. I have spent time travelling through South America and the west coast of Scotland researching my own family ties and through this, sourcing inspiration.

Unique hand crafted copper & silver jewellery, handmade in Orkney.
My jewellery explores space and movement around the wearers body.
Contrasting colour and texture fascinates me, and I seek to manipulate this by working with silver, oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold, and semi-precious stones such as garnet, peridot and citrine. Hammered wire is often contrasted against smooth cupped sheet silver, and 18ct yellow gold will be found scattered amongst oxidised silver links.
