I am a designer jeweller based in Wallingford, South Oxfordshire. I studied jewellery design at the Berkshire College of Art and spent some time at Central St Martins in London in the early nineties. I also won the World Gold Council Student Design Competition in 1992. My jewellery is individually handmade in silver and gold and much of my work is oxdized to turn the silver a beautiful grey/black colour. I also try to find semi-precious beads and stones to compliment this unusual finish. Inspiration for my work comes from my love of the outdoors – the beautiful oxfordshire countryside around me and my love of the coast. My aim is to create beautifully made, individual but wearable pieces of art!
