I have been working in metal for 20 years.I work largely in silver and found objects. I try to achive a handmade/machined aesthetic. Most of my work is fabricated by hand with cast and machined elements. I am fascinated with nature, biology and mythology, and this influences and inspires my practice.
'Doodle Stuff' is the name we give our range of beautifully handcrafted contemporary pin badges.
Based on personal photography of the structural details and materials of the Scottish Parliament, various buildings in New York and Prague and other industrial buildings within Scotland, a collection of both tableware and jewellery has evolved.
By combining natural materials with strong metal forms, the afore-mentioned architectural connotations are realised.

Joanne aims to create work which is artistic by design and which is tactile and striking. She is inspired by bold colours and repetitive patterns found in nature and hopes to create a sense of fluidity and freedom within her designs.
Silver Contemporary Jewellery inspired by the Scottish coast line.
Using mainly silver and oxidised silver I work with unit construction methods such as chain mail to assemble necklaces, bracelets and rings, giving forms which are three dimensional, light, flexible, tactile and durable. Movement and comfort are important elements in the wearing of these uniquely handmade pieces.
I am an independent designer jeweller who can make to order one-off items of gold or silver jewellery for any occasion and on my website there is a large selection of ranges to suit all tastes and budgets.
I am happy to discuss ideas, so feel free to contact me either by phone or email through my website.
My jewellery is essentially inspired by the materials I use and the technique I have established. By compressing the finest gauge of 18ct yellow gold and fine silver wire I create an intriguing solid mesh form. Fusing this wire allows me to achieve interesting 2D and 3D structures. Subsequently designing and handmaking innovative collections of wearable, contemporary jewellery.
