My work is influenced by many aspects and objects of everyday life. I enjoy looking at objects from different angles and breaking it down to it's simplest form, thus capturing it's essence. The result is jewellery which is bold and minimal.
My jewellery is handmade predominantly in silver, often using semi precious stones to add colour and sophistication.
I use both traditional and modern techniques in my work. I like to promote and use traditional jewellery techniques in stone setting, and soldering. I often choose to use riveting (cold connections) to join and connect pieces together. However, I also use modern technology, such as laser welding to join my more intricate work.
I take inspiration from contemporary architectural structures and sculptural forms. Therefore, my jewellery often appears to have a certain sculptural and structured quality to it. I also love the idea of playful jewellery so I often use kinetic elements within my work.
My current collection is inspired from exploring music and musical instruments. The way music effects us and the beauty of the instruments that create it.
I graduated in Jewellery and SIilversmithing at London Metropolitan University in 2007 where I received several awards from the London Goldsmith Company. Since leaving I have been selected to exhibited my work throughout the UK and my work was chosen as one of the 45 new up and coming designers at the prestigious New Designers exhibition.
