How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

As well as a wide variety of designs that can be viewed on my Instagram page and ordered via email. I also accept commissions for unique, bespoke pieces of jewellery and personalised designs.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Expressing myself through my chosen media whilst designing meaningful lasting objects made to be worn and treasured.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am an artist and jeweller, working predominately with recycled sterling silver to create unique jewellery inspired by intriguing aesthetics I encounter daily. My sources of inspiration come from my urban environment which I like to abstract from their original meaning. I work intuitively with the metal by collaging, fusing and adding texture. I come from a fine art background, specialising in sculptural objects and mixed-media assemblage, which translates into the visual qualities of my jewellery.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I work from my home-studio as much as possible. Whilst also working for another jeweller 3 days a week.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

Extended diploma in art & design - Hereford College of Arts
BA (Hons) Fine Art - Manchester School of Art
Co-founder of artist-led curatorial collective Soft Spot
Jeweller at SKEN Studios
