“My inspiration comes from the idea of lifecycles and change in nature, in transience from birth to decay. I am also interested in other sources from archaeological finds to Pre-Raphaelite imagery and symbolism.
I like to respond to my immediate environment and am open to spontaneous finds and observations.
I use a variety of materials and aim to work them into jewellery of a sensitive and delicate quality. I hope to evoke a sense of wonder around my work which leads people to question the idea of preciousness.
Often finding hidden beauties sometimes overlooked in a finished object.”
