using recycled precious metals & traditional goldsmithing
Sustainably handmade in the UK
I am a designer/maker, currently living and working in my studio based in the historic Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, UK. I tend to use the abstraction of shapes that I find all around me. I collage using papers and experiment with colour to create the theme of my collections. I then begin to work in my final chosen materials. My jewellery is about integrating different elements to create statement jewellery with minimal design that focus on colour and geometrical shapes.
My work ethic is to be as sustainable as possible, so all items in my ranges are made using recycled precious metals and sustainable/ethical stones. I often combine these with a throw away material such as plastics, giving these materials the same perceived value as the precious metals or stones used. We have a duty to be kind to our planet and I would like to think I’m doing my own little bit!
