I’m a British designer & maker of contemporary jewellery, working primarily in silver. I make pieces for UK galleries as well as unique commissioned items.
My silver designs incorporate freshwater pearls and semi-precious gemstones, with occasional details in gold-filled, gold vermeil or brass. I’m interested in surface texturing techniques - this gives the silver an almost white luminosity which looks really beautiful alongside pearls and gems.
Influences for some of the pieces come from architectural features re-created on a miniature scale such as tiny windows, roofs or doorways. Others are influenced by the materials themselves or spontaneous inspiration.
I also experiment with lino cutting and printing on fabric, and I’ve even designed the odd album cover!
