My Practice

I am a goldsmith making bespoke and production pieces in my own unique style. My Catkin Collection draws on a pattern seen long ago on an antique ring. I build up the design by soldering sometimes hundreds of tiny discs in place to create a fish scale pattern.

See Alison making a pair of mis-match stud earrings with​ her signature Catkin pattern.

Tools & Materials

My studio, in the heart of Thornhill, is my sanctuary. I surround myself with treasured objects and books, things to inspire my practice and keep my designs moving forward. Many of my hand tools are akin to those used for thousands years for decorative metal work.

Recent Developments

I am normally open by appointment but throughout the pandemic I have been conducting zoom consultations to guide customers through the intricate details of commissioning a jewellery piece.
