I have been designing and making jewellery for many years. My work concentrates on the use of unusual materials – either self made from Polymer or Resin, recycled items or interesting beads and buttons.
I have sold my work at events such as Art in Action and the Craft in Focus shows. My work is sold in a selection of shops, galleries and museums throughout Britain.
In 2019 I am part of the museum shop at Two Temple Place for the John Ruskin – The Power of Seeing exhibition.
I am the author or coauthor of about ten books of bead jewellery projects. The most recent are ‘The Encyclopedia of Wire Jewellery Techniques’ and ‘A Compendium of Jewellery Making Techniques’.
I teach bead making and jewellery making in several arts centres, amongst them West Dean College and the Oxford Summer School. Another of my bead related interests is the Arkell bead collection in the Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford, which I lectured about at the last International Bead Convention in Istanbul.
