Working in metal

My jewellery is original, quirky, but very wearable and delicate, taking organic forms and simplifying them, shapes echoing those of leaves, flowers and forms found in nature.

I work using silver, brass and copper, often etching it to add pattern and texture. Blue titanium is sometimes added as a feature. My clocks show animals and birds, and along with the jewellery, form an illustrated miniature world inspired by details of the natural world around us.

My customers tell me they like my work for its originality, and that in buying it they have a sense of gaining something individual and humorous and beautiful.

I use silver, copper, brass and titanium and when these metals are heated during soldering I create colour effects, and control them through experience to get just the right colour or pattern.
