Jewellery design and creation started as a hobby and relaxation from my busy career in healthcare, but soon became my passion. My contemporary works are influenced by European style, incorporating neoprene into many of my pieces. I predominantly use silver, bronze and brass. My friend and mentor jeweller Kate Sale has also encouraged me to introduce some colour and fun into my collection, with the addition of of some vivid powder coated jewellery. I love the texture created by cuttlefish casting, and use this technique along with water and sand-casting to create unique designs.
