My designs feature a range of textures, patinas and finishes - often exploring the concepts of weathering, ageing and wear.
These pieces are brought to life with colourful cabochons, natural crystals, mineral specimens and interesting found objects.
Being autistic means my jewellery reflects my unique sensory relationship with the world. Pieces are very tactile, and intended to feel as interesting as they look.
Each piece is made with the intention of inspiring the happy feeling of found treasure.

I'm an independent jewellery designer/maker, working from my studio in the heart of Whitchurch Village in Cardiff, my hometown.

I discovered jewellery making accidentally, whilst working in TV production in London and looking for a hands-on arts based activity. Silver jewellery was the only course I could get to on time, and despite a job change meaning I only completed a single term of night classes, I was hooked (and I got my City & Guilds!). Since moving back to Cardiff and taking some time out with my then babies, I rented a studio space and practiced what I'd learned, self-teaching along the way. I count myself fortunate in that I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing.
