I have lived in Hampshire for the last thirty years and been making jewellery for longer than that, but never as a full time career. Starting off as a hobby it soon became a passion and I registered with Goldsmith's Hall Assay Office - London in 1978. I sold in craft markets, local shops and exhibitions throughout the seventies and eighties, taking a break after that to return to full time employment, returning to Jewellery in 2006. I particularly like using a contrast of texture or colour in my jewellery by, for example, adding gold or semi precious stones to a silver piece, or by oxidizing the background of a three dimensional item. Influences come from many different areas as I like to continually evolve and develop new styles and try different techniques.
