I'm inspired by structures in nature and influenced by the jewellery of the past, especially the mourning jewellery of Victorian Britain. The feel of my current collection is delicate, feminine but with a slightly sinister undertone. This is perhaps implied by the use of dark oxidised silver, hammered textures, white pearls (traditionally associated with tears), along with trailing chain-work. Each component structure used is individually finished and instinctively used to form tactile compositions rather than becoming part of a contrived design. Sheet is morphed into buds, wire into stalks, and chain into tendrils, all then put together in a way that allows movement when worn, giving the pieces a free flowing organic form, as if they have grown not been made.
I design and make from my workshop and studio in Edinburgh.
