" I observe the very fine details of nature and qualities such as the colours,
textures, forms and compositions which nature generates as organisms grow or decay. I love the perfect yet imperfect way in which nature replicates itself and grows. If I had to simplify I would say my work is a celebration of the natural
world and reflects my passion for animal and plant life.
My jewellery is tied to tradition because every single part is always and without
exception, hand-made entirely by myself.
Technical understanding and goldsmithing skill allow me to express an idea with freedom but it is just as important to me for the work to take on other and deeper dimensions: conveying a message, telling stories or revealing the character of its
maker rather than simple design or “just being jewellery for the wearing”.
I always think that when someone acquires jewellery made by an artist they also take with them a small piece of the soul of the maker; a unique expression that represents one single moment in the life of that artist at one particular point in time. Rather than
a manufactured object, what the wearer gets is a real story and the knowledge that what they have in their hands was actually made by a person rather than a machine. "
