My collection of jewellery is inspired by a personal love for historical repeat pattern design, particularly floral. I reference floral architectural carvings to provide a link between two and three dimensional ornamentation. I explore aspects of the drawn line, the past and 'vintage' in my work.
My jewellery is made from carved and stained faux ivory, silver gilt, 18ct gold, antique cut semi-precious stones, beads and pearls. Prices range from £30 -£1200

I like my work to be, for want of a better word, friendly. The reason for using silver at all is because it is a wonderful, forgiving, pliable material that I can manipulate with complete sympathy. I want the owners and users of my work to enjoy it , so it has to be direct and approachable and tactile.
Sculpture and 2D works using a variety of materials: glass, wood and metal.
I work in steel and create unique sculptures of animals and abstract pieces. Inspiration is drawn from nature, and a fascination for movement, fluidity, lightness and texture. Humour also plays an important part in the creation process, which hopefully is revealed in my work. For me, metal has still an element of surprise and adaptability is crucial. Scale can vary from small items to life-size artwork.
