Design Philosophy

Inspiration for my jewellery comes from my background as a dressmaker; initially I wanted to design and make jewellery to enhance my collections, and my approach has evolved to explore ways in which I can actually incorporate my dressmaking skills in to my designs. I enjoy experimenting in metal with these textile techniques, also exploring how I can introduce colour into my jewellery

My jewellery appeals to a broad range of wearers who appreciate the elegant simplicity of my designs. Each piece is hand crafted and finished with an emphasis on quality. My inspiration seems to come from the landscape, floral and fauna. Most recently I have been experimenting with linkage techniques and how to create fluidity in my designs through innovative joining methods.
