Precious Metals

The circle is forever the starting point for each of my jewellery designs. Ancient chain maille patterns are my constant inspiration; I experiment with the scale, weight, form and texture of the chains, making sculptural forms, necklaces, bracelets and earrings which are voluminous yet light, tactile and extremely durable. I am fascinated by unit construction techniques in jewellery making, I enjoy the way hard precious metals can be translated into soft forms which flow and stir with the body.

I prefer to concentrate on a palette of black and white (silver and oxidised silver). My aim is to create striking contemporary jewellery which can be worn for both special occasions and every day.

Movement and comfort are essential requirements in the wearing of these unique handcrafted pieces. All of the jewellery is completely handmade in the studio, every circle is formed, soldered and finished by myself.
