My work usually starts with a want to reproduce a line or shape I have found in nature, and living in Constable country gives me endless inspiration.
I am a silversmith and jeweller and I link my work back to nature by using recycled and ethically sourced materials in my work.
I use enamels, stones and glass to add colour into my designs, quite often I can be found walking on the beach while on holiday looking for washed up broken bits of sun-bleached coral to add into my work.
All my work is hand made and unique and although some may be repeated they are never identical. I enjoy doing commissions and working with clients in making special sentimental works of art.
I was a full time teacher in secondary schools but you can now find me teaching jewellery at the Essex Wildlife Trust from time to time.
I graduated from the John Cass Department of Art in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Craft in 2001 winning a Goldsmiths Company Metal Bursary and a British Jewellers Association Certificate of Merit.
