Biography

I use the simplicity of line and natural form to create ergonomic, wearable stone set art objects in precious metals. The gem material I use is carefully selected for its unique natural inclusions.

I hand craft my pieces using traditional techniques such as, alloying gold, forging, shaping, texturising and mount making, to create distinctive sculptural forms to emphasise the carefully chosen gemstones. These gemstones are cut and set to show their inclusions and history.

2016 will see me launching a new range of work, which will include gemstones that have been cut and carved by myself, as a continuation of the sculptural feel of my jewellery.
