I make fine, contemporary jewellery for everyday wear. The work is delicate and distinctive.

After studying fine art at Oxford Brookes University, I worked alongside a local jeweller before setting up my own workshop in Oxford. For five years, I attended the weekly guided studio sessions of Sonia Cheadle, London-based master goldsmith. My recent work uses fused 24ct gold and silver. When the silver is oxidised the result is a distinctive contrast of black and gold.

I have a range of earrings for non-pierced ears which are elegant, lightweight and comfortable. I also have a range of ‘bee’ jewellery – inspired by the bees I keep on an allotment in North Oxford .

Most of my pieces are ‘one-off’; some are produced in a limited range; all are made with meticulous care by hand. I am happy to work with clients to develop an individual piece.
