I am a jeweller, designer, maker and artist.
I produce one-off wearable items of jewellery utilising my background training within the discipline of tableware ceramics & printed textiles. By combining these skills the application of surface pattern & ornamentation is explored by using a diverse range of process and material manipulation. This leads to a juxtaposition of simple to complex compositions by placement & layering to form pieces that can be considered as not just items of jewellery but pieces of art within their own right.
Works include the combination of natural and hand dyed screen-printed silks, hand engraved, glazed, printed slip cast bone china/porcelain, decorative applications of pattern to metals in unconventional ways. This enables the creation of jewellery pieces that are extremely unique within the arena of contemporary jewellery, craft & fashion.
I create my pieces in my workshop situated in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham.
