Working from my studio in East Yorkshire, I create handmade fine jewellery from recycled sterling silver.
I’d describe my style as minimalist and simple with subtle details. I combine organic forms and textures with contrasting structured shapes.
Design has always played a big role in my life. I have a huge appreciation for it in all its forms and this has led me to pursue lots of different avenues over the years.
In 2012 I graduated with a degree in printed textiles. My degree taught me many design skills and I was able to transfer those skills when I started my main job as a graphic designer in 2015.
Still craving to learn more and having always had an interest in handmade jewellery, I enrolled in silversmithing classes which I attended for 9 months. I then set up my own workshop and have been making jewellery since 2017.
My inspiration comes from all design areas- ceramics, paintings, interior design and architecture as well as nature. Living close to the coast I take inspiration from the sea and the shapes it creates.
I love it when nature begins to reclaim the space where man-made objects stand- weathered buildings, moss growing on walls, weeds between pavements. This is why you’ll often find ‘imperfect’ shapes and textures in my work mixed with more linear, polished forms.
I strive to be as kind to the environment as possible- although at times it seems like an impossible task!
I use 100% recycled silver and all the packaging I use is recyclable or home compostable. The organic cotton pouches that your jewellery is sent with is made by me from offcuts.
In my studio I keep in mind the ethical and environmental impacts of my decisions and opt for as kind and responsible materials, consumables and methods as possible.
Transparency is important to me, so if there is anything you’d like to ask me don’t hesitate to contact me.
