I am a designer / maker based near the seaside in Westbourne, Dorset. I make jewellery that is inspired by mid-century fabric prints, architecture and illustrations, influencing my choice of colour and form. I want my work to retain its wearability, but also like to imagine jewellery as small-scale sculpture. 

I like to collage different metal elements together, working with wire and cast forms. I start designing with brief sketches in 2D, but quickly move to 3D experimentation. There is always a period of trial and error, putting together a jigsaw of all the individual elements and then rearranging until wearable pieces start to appear.
