Commissions are welcome, and whether inspired by an occasion, rite of passage, object or special stone, the most important element is the wearer’s personality. A piece whose symbolism, however subtle, brings joy to the wearer.My work often has a narrative feel, a surprise or hidden detail.I now make both multiple and unique pieces, combining these techniques with precious metals and precious and semi-precious stones. I make fine jewellery designed to be worn every day and for all occasions.My work has evolved to reflect my love of traditional techniques, including enamelling, micro mosaic, glass casting, stone carving and engraving.I am inspired by organic forms found in nature, history, travel, holidays and ‘la dolce vita’!
