Inspiration comes in the form of each persons true personality and being able to understand their lives; from creating pieces inspired by particular journies they have travelled to designing pieces inspired by their love of the sea.
I take ideas from everywhere, every journey I take and every person I meet is part of what forms the personality of a design, no matter how simple or wild and translate them into a piece of jewellery.
Jewellery is the most unique and beautiful thing – it’s something that none of us need but what it can represent and give us can go far above what words and photos can say and thats why I love it – it’s everlasting.
Every commission that I work on is individual and no piece is ever the same. I ask questions about your ideas but also listen and feel my way through what you are about through getting to know you.
Strong research is a vitally important part of the process, which I follow through with the medium of drawing and painting. I create a series of designs and using a process of elimination we slowly form a final and beautiful design, and then make that vision a piece that literally jumps off the page.
I am not a jeweller, but a jewellery artist – my skills lie in translating my clients’ briefs into original illustrations and traditional plan drawings, which describe each design down to the very last detail. I then work closely with handpicked craftsmen to bring my designs to life, either by hand or through computer-aided design (CAD), depending on the nature of the piece.
“I have spent the last few years working very hard at creating not only the business and career that I want to live but also the life I want, It has been quite the journey and I am still only just at the beginning. Having now separated my business’s, I am very excited about being able to focus more on my art work and over the coming years look forward to sharing the one off pieces of art that I am currently working on.”
