My jewellery is based around the multiple use of textured silver units that have developed through experimentation; gathering ideas at the workbench and observing details in nature and urban decay which influence the surface of a piece. These units are combined with semiprecious beads, climbing cord and cork to add colour and create mood. By altering the scale and pattern formation I create simple earrings to elaborate multi unit one-off necklaces. I studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at Loughborough College of Art and Design followed by an MA in Jewellery at the Royal College of Art.
