About me

My work focuses on the symmetry found in nature and my aim is to confront the beauty that is invisible to our eyes due the limitations of our senses through my jewellery. In other words, the magnificence of a world under a microscope that we are unable to perceive without the help of technology and science. Even though I lack the appropriate equipment I am fascinated by the world of microscopy and generally science. I find it strangely amazing how something that organic can be so symmetrical and so wisely designed. ​ Inspired from this symmetry of repetition that characterizes the microcosm I have been exploring lichen forms, mitochondria and diatom colonies by using mixed media such as silver, monofilament line and beads. Colour has a significant role in my work as it enhances the forms and shapes. A major inspiration for my colour pallet was Gram-staining, a colouring technique used by scientist to define forms and make them visible under a microscope. ​ A catalytic experience was visiting Michael Lloyd’s silversmithing studio where I had an insight of how an independent silversmith works as well as gain feedback for my Quaich bowl which was featured in the annual magazine “Keepers of the Quaich”. ​ In the future, I see myself designing and making pieces that are on the edge of being commercial but at the same time having a sense of artistic design. The simplicity in combination with the elegance of repetition is something I am very excited to explore further and in a range of different materials.
