I design and hand-make my collections of silver, gold and aluminium jewellery from my home studio in the North Yorkshire countryside. I have been designing and making jewellery for about twenty five years and have always loved making things and being creative. I am inspired by my surroundings and enjoy being out and about in the beautiful countryside I live in and am a keen gardener so my love of plants definitely influences my work. I also love having a go at different creative techniques and enjoy the challenge of learning new skills.

Originally I studied graphic design at college and upon completion I saw a Silversmithing course advertised locally and thought I'd love to have a go and I was hooked. Since then I have been apprenticed to two very highly respected contemporary jewellery designer/goldsmiths and have worked in two contemporary craft galleries alongside designing, making and exhibiting my own jewellery collections.

I use traditional jewellery making skills and techniques and all of my work is made by hand by me in my small studio. I feel passionate about the jewellery I make and the utmost care and attention is taken at all stages of production.
It is an absolute joy for someone to choose to buy my jewellery and I hope they get as much enjoyment wearing it as I did creating it.
