My jewellery explores space and movement around the wearers body.
Contrasting colour and texture fascinates me, and I seek to manipulate this by working with silver, oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold, and semi-precious stones such as garnet, peridot and citrine. Hammered wire is often contrasted against smooth cupped sheet silver, and 18ct yellow gold will be found scattered amongst oxidised silver links
I work primarily with precious metal wire creating handmade links and chain that are repeated and layered to create spaces that change and move with the wearer.
Inspired by both organic and man made forms, I can spend hours researching shape and form at the Royal Botanical Gardens in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. I am equally at home drawing the space created inside the monkey enclosures at Edinburgh Zoo, and the forms found at Musselburgh Harbour and Rhu Marina.
My jewellery ranges from one off contemporary pieces to smaller more wearable designs, inspired by my larger work.
