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

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.
Individual, intricate and vibrant handcrafted bead
and wirework accessories.
