Expressing myself through my chosen media whilst designing meaningful lasting objects made to be worn and treasured.
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 stem from my urban environment, which I abstract from their original, intended meaning. I work intuitively with the metal by collaging, fusing, engraving and adding texture.
I come from a fine art background, specialising in creating sculptural objects and mixed-media assemblage in both 2D & 3D, which translates into the visual qualities of my jewellery.
I’ve always used painting as a way to initially realise the shapes and marks that have inspired me. These painting then influence the forms I create into the jewellery, as well as the sculptural display. I’ve decided to show a selection of these paintings alongside the wearable objects this year.
I work from my home-studio as much as possible. Whilst also working for another jeweller 3 days a week.
