I originally studied photography and after a brief spell working as a photographer, I spent a few years working as a website manager. My journey into jewellery making started during this time with evening classes, I quickly fell in love with it and carried on taking part time classes, eventually doing a City and Guilds at City Lit. In 2014, when my second child turned one, I decided to take it from a hobby to a career and began slowly building up my business.
My work is inspired by the natural forms I see around me every day, it has a minimal aesthetic with simple clean lines. I aim to create pieces with a quiet beauty, which are a pleasure to wear. I love to use semi-precious gems with interesting inclusions and plenty of character and I enjoy mixing silver and 18ct gold in one piece; always striving to combine these two metals seamlessly. I employ traditional fabrication techniques as well as wax carving and casting to create my pieces.
My design emphasis is on simple, wearable, timeless pieces of jewellery that can be worn and loved every day and then handed down to the next generation.
