I am a Silversmith and Jeweller working with traditional techniques to create beautiful, tangible pieces that express my fascination with elemental beauty. I love to spend time absorbing myself in the outdoor world and draw my inspiration from the flow of energy within nature; ‘The twisting turmoil of the storm or the curl of a wave.’
Tucked away in my studio in the beautiful Cotswold village of Chalford, each piece of my work, from the smallest of studs to the largest of vessels is hand made with love, care and attention. Hand tools act as an extension of my arm and I use hammers, and hand-fashioned steel punches to translate undulation and scrumptious texture into the metal.
I use age-old techniques including chasing and repousse, hand raising, snarling, fusing and fabrication. I have received numerous awards for my work within these areas.
Commissioning or purchasing a piece of work
I create several ranges of elegant yet striking jewellery as well as one-off items of sculptural but functional silverware. Select ranges of my work are available for purchase in several galleries as well as in person at Fairs and exhibitions throughout the year. Take a look at my upcoming exhibitions.
Bespoke items include the designing and making of unique wedding and engagement rings. I love the whole commissioning process, where I get to work with you closely from the initial concept to the finished piece. Sketches or models of my ideas are generally completed before an agreement on the final design is established and an understanding of budget is finalised.
Recently I have worked on several commissions using clients recycled ‘old gold’ or jewellery items and reworking it into something exciting and fresh. It is a beautiful process which, as well as cutting down on overall costs of the commission, transfers the sentimental value often held within the old jewellery/heirloom metal.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss commissioning further or would like information on available pieces held in stock.
I am passionate about working in ways to support the environment. All the packaging and promotional material used in my jewellery and silverware are produced with recycled or sustainably sourced materials where possible.
