MY STORY

The style of my jewellery is reflective of the harmony of nature.                    

Using silversmithing and anticlastic raising techniques, silver and gold is navigated and raised into hollow organic forms, creating strong, yet delicate structures.

Distinctive variations evolve in each piece as I am guided by the movement of the metal. This process gives each piece a unique character.

Different surface finishes further enhance the contrasts in texture, light and shade.
