Artist's StatementI have been designing and making jewellery for about 14 years since I attended an evening class and was immediately hooked. I work mostly in silver and like to make wearable pieces inspired by nature, with particular favourites being flowers, leaves and birds. I also like to make simple timeless classics based on geometrical shapes. I replicate natural textures using forging techniques and my rolling mill, where I have produced my own etched texture plates. A lot of my designs involve piercing or sawing out intricate shapes and precise soldering. I like to add interest to my work with accents of gold and copper and another area that I’m particularly focusing on at the moment is vitreous enamelling using a kiln. I’ve always enjoyed drawing and painting and this allows me to add colour to my work and is a marriage of art and jewellery making which is really good fun.
I’ve taken part in Open Studios several previous years and enjoy showing people around my studio and explaining how I’ve created my pieces. I am happy to take commissions and consider repairs.
