Long love of jewellery and crafts led to studying for an Advanced Diploma in jewellery and design at City of Bath College, culminating in 2012.
My Diploma project, ‘Threads of India’, was a totally inspiring and absorbing theme and incorporated experimentation with textiles and metals and eventually the use of reclaimed vintage Indian sari silks and threads within my work.
Current work is sculptural, textural, tactile and individual. Metals take on the qualities of Indian silks, each piece unique and hand-formed. Contemporary jewellery with a strong link to the traditional handicrafts, textiles and clothing of India. In addition, re-claimed saris are transformed into bold neckwear, all hand-stitched and hand-formed.
Following an incredible visit to Jaipur in 2015, new work will have reference to this exciting and colourful corner of India.
