Working with silver and found objects to create individual, handmade pieces inspired by the landscape and daily life in the west of Scotland.
I design and hand craft silver jewellery. I work mainly with .925 Sterling Silver. I also incorporate copper and brass in some pieces. I enjoy using quality gemstone cabochons, beads and dichroic glass. Recently I have been using seashore 'found' objects such as sea glass and slate, as they are in plentiful supply on the local beaches!
I like to make simple yet eye-catching and attractive jewellery that people will take pleasure from looking at and wearing.

My work is inspired by the shape and movement of windmills. I enjoy bright colour and decorative pattern and my main processes are photo-etching and cold enamelling.
