With over 20 years experience as a diamond and semi-precious stone setter, I wanted to create my own jewellery pieces and experiment with different mediums. I began designing silver pendants and earrings, integrating pieces of found wood, and have discovered a passion for the world of enameling and cloisonné.
When working with enamels, it is exciting to look through the layers of glass to the world beneath and all the vivid colours that are displayed. You never know exactly what you are going to get!
I love the journey that working with my hands, and using these materials takes me on. Sometimes I have a plan as to what I want to do and other times I go with the flow; shaping the metals, layering the enamels and finding just the right place for each semi-precious stone. Incorporating all these elements add to the mystery and magic of my designs.
