My jewellery redefines crochet for the 21st Century. Think of it as crocheting ‘off piste’. With a conscious rejection of mechanised jewellery production, my work is entirely hand-made, firmly rooted in the traditions of craft. I revel in the physical act of making – of time spent productively with patience and love.
I express my creativity using pure high carat gold and silver wire less than half a millimetre thick – seeing my jewellery quite literally as drawings in the air. Fluid lines and sinuous curves emerge, adorned with crochet stitches of gold. Rich texture reflecting pinpoints of light. Capturing tiny diamonds in individual stitches, I transform strong, hard metal into unexpectedly soft, sensuous forms that inspire wonder and beg to be touched.
