My jewellery is predominantly made using sterling silver. Often I enhance pieces using accents of 18ct gold and incorporate gemstones as a source of colour. I aim to create jewellery with a strong emphasis on texture, decorative pattern and shape, all of which evolves from experimenting with the versatility of the precious metals themselves using various silversmithing techniques such as reticulation, roll printing and piercing.

I also derive inspiration from the shapes, forms and colours found in nature. I produce small design ranges, limited and one-off pieces. All of my work is handmade and carefully finished.

I live and work in Fife, Scotland.
