When you have a technical AND creative brain what do you do? Design and make jewellery, of course!
Initially I studied engineering, followed later by art and for me, making jewellery has been the happy combination of these two disciplines.
All my jewellery is handmade in my workshop atop the - often - windswept Pennines. Surrounded as I am by Emily Bronte’s ‘high waving heather’ and the green wooded valleys, it is little wonder that my work is inspired by nature. The veins of a leaf and the rain or dewdrop glistening on it are some of the details I’ve drawn down. Every piece is impressed with the texture of a real skeleton leaf and therefore every piece is unique.
I work with silver and semi precious stones and am inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in both Britain and Vienna at the turn of the last century.
I love creating these wearable little bits of nature and I hope you’ll love them too.

And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.”
