All of my pieces begin outdoors.

From my studio on the edge of Epping Forest, I forage for tiny instances of Mother Nature – like peeling tree bark or a fallen seed. I turn these fragments into handcrafted contemporary jewellery using a technique known as ‘lost wax casting’.

After casting the foraged fragments in bronze, silver or gold, I carefully manipulate the metal – priming and polishing, bending and burnishing, helping the organic shape to fit the contours of our own natural bodies.

My aim is for my jewellery is to capture nature and recast it for you.

Background

I have been studying and making jewellery for almost two decades.

I initially studied Photography at Bournemouth Arts Institute. After graduating with a BA I enrolled on various evening courses for jewellery and silversmithing. When I realised that was where my heart lay, I attended Holts Jewellery Academy in Hatton Garden for further training.

I live on the edge of London and Epping Forest, with my partner and two children.
