My jewellery journey began with a demonstation of Lost Wax casting - fire and alchemy, what a blast, I was hooked. I found my basic skills in 3 years at The School of Jewellery and Silversmithing, Hockley in the heart of the jewellery quarter in Birmingham, moving on to London to work in the studio of Andrew Grima HRH, that was just the begining.
Since then I have been making my own style of jewellery inspired by my wild and varied rural surrounds, interspersed with exotic travels, I love combining a variety of metals and texture in one piece prefering to finish peices with a satin to matt 'polish' that allows the metals to be seen in all their glory and really 'shine'.
I'm an avid collector of anything wild that catches my eye, be it a texture, pod, seed, unfurling leaf, lichens or foundling along the shoreline.
My current love affair is with rainbow moonstone which feature in much of my new work, do have a look, I hope you enjoy browsing through or even feel moved to own a piece.
