My jewellery explores space and movement around the wearers body. Inspired by botanical forms, I design feminine and delicate Silver Jewellery.
Contrasting colour and texture fascinates me, and I seek to manipulate this by working with silver, oxidised silver and 18ct yellow gold. Hammered wire is often contrasted against smooth cupped sheet silver, and 18ct yellow gold will be found scattered amongst oxidised silver links
I work primarily with precious metal wire creating handmade links and chain that are repeated and layered to create spaces that change and move with the wearer. Silver petal and flower forms are explored and repeated to create pretty, wearable jewellery.
Inspired by organic and botanical, I can spend hours researching shape and form at the Royal Botanical Gardens in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. I am equally at home drawing the space created inside the monkey enclosures at Edinburgh Zoo, and the forms found at Musselburgh Harbour and Rhu Marina.
My jewellery ranges from one off contemporary pieces to smaller more wearable designs, inspired by my larger work.
