I have always loved Nature in her many guises. My father was a botanist and conservationist which undoubtedly had a huge influence as he passed on his passion & teachings; I inherited my creative streak from my mum and these two factors combined to enable a healthy curiosity in the natural world and love of colour, texture, shape and art. It was a natural progression into jewellery making in my early twenties which I soon fell in love with. I love to work with my hands, especially with fiddly, tiny things, and watch them evolve over the hours. It's a fabulously mindful practice which I enjoy, and which gives me exceptional pleasure when someone buys my creations.
Jewellery is something so special that is treasured, handed down for generations, and is a part of what makes you 'you'. I create jewellery that I hope will become every day favourites that you feel naked without, or something that makes you feel a million dollars on a special occasion. I am inspired by the stones themselves - whether it is the way they have been cut and faceted, or the colour or texture, I enjoy the journey of picking a gemstone up and working with it to show it off to it's fullest.
