I enjoy blending polymer clay adding pigment inks and other media to create close ups and impressions inspired by the natural world around me on the Welsh Borders.
Being an artist means losing self and time in colour and landscape, focusing on small details and inflating them. No one piece is the same as blending clay is unpredictable and I love seeing new pieces evolve through experimentation. I can create larger pieces as the clay is very lightweight.
Pomegranate Collective Jewellery design explores the natural world through texture and colour and large organic shapes.
I work from my studio at home, and have provided basic jewellery classes whilst living in Granada, Spain in the past.
I developed Jewellery making skills and artistic experiences over the years starting as a student trying to find ways to supplement a grant/make my own accessories and then alongside a long career in social work.
Latterly I have undertaken an adult Silversmithing course at HCA and several short Silver and Pewter jewellery making courses at Manchester School of Jewellery ( 2020 -23).
Although I enjoy working in silver I prefer the experimentation in colour and exaggerated form that polymer clay provides.
