MAIN PHOTO: 'Ocean Waves' Ring. Inspired By The Sea.
I possess a City & Guilds qualification in Jewellery Manufacturing.
I use upcycled/recycled and reclaimed/found materials in my designs for greater sustainability, predominantly upcycled English lead free pewter, recycled sterling silver and vintage components. I rarely work to sketches, instead preferring to design prototypes in base metals allowing the material itself to serve as a guide towards how a finished piece might look.
My designs are kept simple and minimalist and I use ancient, basic metalsmithing techniques for minimum environmental impact.
I am a certified Fairtrade Gold Sales Ambassador.
I am inspired and influenced by modernist industrial Art Deco design, 1960's Space Age, the Arts & Crafts Movement and the natural environment.
