I make jewellery which is designed to appeal to both men and women. I use a range of materials and processes to create pieces of work many of which are individual and quite unique. Inspiration for my work comes from the somewhat unexpected source of road markings warning and direction signs and symbols. I combine mild steel, with silver and 18 carat gold, creating pieces featuring ceramics, diamonds and vitreous enamels. I also make very small lathe turned pots which complement the designed aesthetics of the jewellery.
All my work is hand made to a high standard using a range of processes and materials and is the result of an ongoing and continually evolving creative process where design decisions are often made in the heat of the moment at the bench. Although there are common themes and close similarities between items, most items are individual and are therefore ‘one off’ pieces. It is difficult, and in some cases impossible to duplicate designs precisely.
