I began working with silver about eight years ago and gradually developed my skills and personal style to produce a range of sterling silver jewellery. I draw on my experience in fashion design (St. Martins School of Art) and as a water-colourist (member of society of botanical artists). I don't intend my jewellery to be pretty but rather more striking and interesting. I like to combine different techniques into each item, for example, hammering, piercing and folding etc. I sometimes combine silver with semi-precious stones other metals and beads. My work can be seen at the Sainsburys Centre in Norwich and at Bond Street Studios in Hingham.
