I trained as an artist/designer and now simply love designing and making jewellery. The excitement comes from working in a variety of materials… glass, copper, silver, polymer clay and semi-precious gems stones. I also take great pleasure in working and developing ideas with textiles and mixed media. My garden and the natural world offer me great inspiration.

I make one-off pieces of jewellery in glass, silver, copper, silk and semi-precious stones. Interested by the materials and their varying and fabulous qualities of colour, texture and form, I take my inspiration from the natural world and historic art movements.

At Art School I trained as a designer and now specialise in Jewellery Design and Mixed Media work.
