I have been working with precious metals for over 5 years now and love that there is still so much to learn.
Initially I started by collecting and casting shells and setting unusual pieces of sea glass. I still continue this side of my work today as I adore strolling on the beach searching for pieces.
My new body of work looks at the different ways in which you can manipulate metal. This involves looking at the contours and forms found in nature and ways to mimic this in metal. By combining forging, fold-forming and raising I am able to create delicate three dimensional wearable sculpture.
Individual designs are further developed by incorporating gold accents and semi-precious stones. These are used to highlight and emphasise the multi-dimensional aspects of the work.
I currently exhibit my work in a number of shops and galleries as well as selected shows throughout the year. You can find the full list on the events page.
