I am interested in exploring sculptural and textural forms using different precious metals and base metals such as gold, silver and copper. I use raw and rare uncut stones within my work including meteorite, moldavite, which is a form of meteorite, tourmaline, ruby, sapphires, garnets and much more. My sculptural Jewellery is developed through exploring old and modern forms of processes, including the Japanese metal folding technique of Mokume-gane, keum boo and 3D Printing.
After training as an engineer and obtaining a City and Guilds in Fabrication of Metals, I moved from Lincolnshire and set up a workshop in Glastonbury. Working with other creative people, exploring ancient sites such as Glastonbury Tour and Avebury as well as mountain climbing and beachcombing, have all been highly inspirational in the texture and design of my work. I also found it easy to transfer skills learnt from engineering and electronics, including soldering and forming base metals, enabling me to make creative works of art within jewellery.
Since returning to Lincolnshire in 2009, I have set up a garden studio where I continue to expand my explorations in jewellery design and wearable art.
My jewellery is for sale throughout the UK.
My work is hallmarked through
the Edinburgh Assay Office.
