About me

Contemporary Designer Maker, creating conceptual sculptural objects and jewellery that slaps you round the face (in a good way). Key influences are my scientific background, love of vibrant colours and fashion. My work is led by ideas and material exploration, outcomes are unknown but often wearable; pieces tend to be oversized, bold and induce curiosity. I excel at combining unconventional materials and enjoy seeing the strange reactions to my colour/material combinations.

Awards

Silver in Fashion Led Conceptual Jewellery

Judges encourage you to work to a high standard of manufacture.
