Simple, but bold, my jewellery consists of geometric shapes combined with soft finishes and surfaces textures.
Led to create form reminiscent of seed pods for their inspiring delicacy yet strength, I strive to make pieces which feel personal and intimate. I often use hollow forms to give a surprising lightness to larger pieces and also allow the potential for the pieces to be used as containers, to hold keepsakes or produce noises when moved.
I enjoy repetition in making and so my work often features multiple units of varying size or texture to create a contrast while remaining cohesive.
I predominantly work with silver but often compliment this with handmade cotton linter paper elements and woven paper yarn chains to enhance the organic feel of the jewellery.
