After graduating BDes(Hons) in Jewellery & Metal Design in 2011 from Duncan of Jordanstone, Dundee, I set up my studio in rural Fife. I find inspiration in both natural and man-made structure, especially metalwork and frames.
My debut collections are based on photography and artwork response to one of my favourite places; the Victorian glasshouses of Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Architectural detail and regular structures are combined with more organic forms, mimicking the delicacy of the natural world that often attaches itself, either as a physical reality or transiently as a fleeting reflection. It is my aim to capture the essence of these visual pleasures, as well as the trickery of reflection and distortion.
Deploying traditional metalworking techniques together with processes usually associated with textiles, such as crochet and needlework, I use a combination of silver, semi-precious stones and resin in my work. There are no patterns used in the crochet ensuring that each piece of jewellery is unique.
