I specialise in jewellery and botanical painting and translating my artwork and ideas into highly successful commercial designs. I'm experienced in dealing with the far East for production and manufacturing as well as managing the design process to achieve high quality work in tight deadlines.
I am the jewellery design manager for a sister brand where I work as the head jewellery designer. I'm responsible for forecasting upcoming trends for collections and making the selection for new designs to be used. It is a fast paced environment where I need to liaise with designers in the far east and coordinate production and sampling using sterling silver and semi precious gemstones.
Providing research, technical sketches and collection planning for upcoming jewellery. Created designs for the first brand's first sterling silver collection.
I translate tired family heirloom jewellery into fresh contemporary designes to me remade using the 18ct gold and precious gemstones .
Provided a painting in gouache and watercolour for translation into pattern and embroidery design.
