I am an artisan jewellery designer/creator working from my studio in South Cambridgeshire. The core of my work is creating one-of-a-kind pieces and commissions.
Many of my designs develop from examining classic jewellery styles of the past, from Art Deco to Anglo-Saxon, and reimagining them. Fundamental features of my work are sandcasting, contrasting and juxtaposed textures as well as use of gemstones and KeumBoo to highlight features and add colour. In my sandcasting I use a variety of beach sands from unique locations (particularly from Cornwall, where I grew up) as each one imparts a different, unique texture depending on particle size/shape and mineral content.
My vision is creating modern and timeless designs using ethically sourced and environmentally sustainable materials. All of my pieces are intended to be wearable on a daily basis but would also suit those “special” occasions. I work both in gold and silver, either ethically mined (Single Mine Origin) or recycled and all my gemstones are sourced from suppliers who share my strong ethical and environmental beliefs.
