"I launched my jewellery business in 2006 while living in New York and studying jewellery design in Manhattan. After recently returning to my native North East England I now work from my studio in rural Northumberland where I live with my husband, my toddler Miles and my baby Juliette.I design pieces in Rolled Gold/Gold Filled and Sterling Silver inspired by organic forms and delicate craftsmanship; I also regularly create bespoke pieces on commission. I studied for my degree in Art History in London before I learnt the art of jewellery craftsmanship, and it is my love of art that regularly informs my work, to me my pieces are my art.My work offers a unique and feminine aesthetic. I go to great lengths to source beautiful and unique stones which are faceted by hand. My work entails a lot of hand hammering and intricate wire wrapping. My customers are astute individuals with a great eye for detail and love of the little things that are truly beautiful in life."
