My jewellery making began initially because I was bored of chinese mass production so I wanted to make something different for myself. Other people began to show an interest and started to ask for commissions.
I mainly worked with gems and threading and beading, I decided I wanted to branch out more and get into working with silver. I then joined JASSO (http://www.jasso.org.uk/) jewellery and silversmiths Oxford where I began working in silver, I had got the bug and decided to go to study jewellery making in Italy for a course at a school in Florence for 8 months, Metallo Nobile, (http://www.metallo-nobile.com/en/index.php). It was an amazing experience living and learning in the center of Florence surrounded by Artisans and inspiration. Back In England I continued to Study and attended Courses at Holts Academy of jewellery London (http://www.holtsacademy.com/#7) for jewellery manufacture and CAD design, I continue to go to go JASSO and work from home in my studio working on new collections and commissions, I also teach and have private students.
