Interests and Personality

Biography In 1992 I pursued my dream of making jewellery. Daily walks around the beach and estuary near my home studio provide ongoing design inspiration. The ocean in particular always has a calming meditative effect on my emotions and I enjoy translating these feelings into something tangible, lasting and beautiful. I create works with contrasting colours and textures using layering techniques to achieve a tactile 3D effect. Sterling silver, gold, titanium, alloy metals and gemstones are my materials of choice. I particularly enjoy the hand made aspect of this craft. Hand fabricated jewellery looks and feels really special. I believe the energy that passes from the maker to the object remains forever within the finished piece. I love the fact that something precious I have made with my hands and heart can also appeal to someone else on a very personal level. Items they choose become an extension of their own personality, constantly worn and enjoyed.
