I established my London studio after receiving a grant from the Crafts Council in the early eighties. My work has since been shown in a large number of exhibitions in the UK, Europe, the USA and Japan.
My jewellery is featured in many books and several press articles published worldwide and can also be seen in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Goldsmiths’ Company, the Crafts Council and Stafford Art Gallery.
I work in gold and silver which is often heavily oxidised. I often use translucent precious gemstones with unusual shapes and cuts in my designs. The gold I use is nearly always recycled from old pieces of jewellery.
The majority of my pieces are one-offs. I like the idea that my clients own something which is special and unique.
I occasionally produce limited ranges of jewellery, sometimes in mixed media.
I enjoy working to commission with a special person or theme in mind.
My clients are collectors and people who like to be seen wearing something different and distinctive.
I have taught in several London colleges and I currently offer short courses at West Dean College, as well as one-to-one sessions in my studio.
