I am a jeweller and silversmith with over 30 years experience in making fine jewellery. I make creative and elegant handmade jewellery in silver, gold and precious stones. I also enjoy working with clients to design, develop and form individual pieces of bespoke jewellery.

My Practice

Much of my work is influenced by plants and organic forms to create contemporary collections. I work in silver, gold and precious stones and I set all the stones and often make the settings myself as sometimes I use individually shaped gemstones. My collections include rings, bangles, brooches, bracelets, neckpieces and silversmith items.

Tools & Materials

My current studio and showroom is within our cottage in Borgue with views of Ben John. Most of my work is produced on my beautiful workbench made from French Oak and Maple. The tools I use range from traditional to some of the latest developments in jewellery making. As much of work has a satin finish I have a microblaster and I also use a machine to gold plate as this is done in the house.

Spring Fling Activity

As I am lucky to live by the sea and enjoy wild swimming I have been much influenced by waves, ripples in the sand and the forms that are left by the tides. I am currently working on a new collection that will be launched in 2022 that has been inspired by this.
