I am an architect turned jeweller living and working in Fife. I studied Architecture at ECA, graduating in 2004, and then worked as an architect in London for 10 years. In 2014 I decided to move into jewellery making as I was fed up with the length of time it takes to turn ideas into buildings and the loss of creative control that comes with working as part of such a big team. With jewellery, and particularly polymer clay, I can test an idea in a matter of hours.I use polymer clay as it's a versatile material which has interesting properties to exploit. My designs are heavily influenced by my surroundings, with my first collection reflecting the surfaces and geometry of London. My second collection was designed after moving to my seaside studio and the colours and shapes of the coast have made their way into the designs. Stockists include Tate Modern and the V&A. My aim is to create elegant yet playful statement pieces which can be worn every day.
