My designs feature a range of textures, patinas and finishes - often exploring the concepts of weathering, ageing and wear.
These pieces are brought to life with colourful cabochons, natural crystals, mineral specimens and interesting found objects.
Being autistic means my jewellery reflects my unique sensory relationship with the world. Pieces are very tactile, and intended to feel as interesting as they look.
Each piece is made with the intention of inspiring the happy feeling of found treasure.
Shape of Words
Oriel Bevan Jones Gallery
I was born in 1974 in Cardiff.
I discovered jewellery-making qute by accident, whilst working in television production and looking for a creative distraction. The only course I could get to was an evening class in silver jewellery making. Due to a new job, I could only complete one term of the course but I was hooked.
Back in Cardiff with a young family, I rented a studio space in 2009 to 'have a go' and didn't come out.
Now working and living in Whitchurch, North Cardiff.
