The tradition of taking afternoon tea has been the inspiration for my work, with the food consumed and the tableware used in this ritual providing a rich visual source of colour, pattern and texture. Using a variety of materials such as handmade felt, hand dyed vintage lace, gemstones and precious metal; I aim to create contemporary jewellery and decorative objects that combine an air of quiet nostalgia with a quirky sense of humour.
A collector by nature, I am constantly gathering and storing relics of the past. From vintage lace to chocolate boxes, I enjoy transforming old materials by recycling and feel that their use in the creation of new objects allows faded memories to live on in a different form. My range of work includes jewellery in mixed materials, decorative felt cakes and boxes of felt chocolates.
