Having trained at the Art School in Sheffield with strong connections
in silversmithing, my work has an emphasis on strength and
durability. The designs are carefully thought out with an organic feel,
inspiration coming from the beautiful seascapes where I live and work.
I combine both silver and gold, sometimes with precious stones, giving
an interesting contrast in colour and form. Great care is taken in the
production of my jewellery and silverware, I employ traditional
techniques and each piece is hand polished to a high quality finish,
resulting in, most importantly, comfortable jewellery to wear and
silverware that is easy to use.
