As a Herefordshire based jeweller, I am proud to have completed my BA (hons) in Contemporary Applied Arts at Hereford College of Arts.


A love of antique scientific instruments led me to explore the workings of Orreries and their movement. This then introduced the kinetic element in my work, and subsequently my highly individual Kinetic Rings. These signature pieces were the starting point for my range of jewellery.


The majority of my work is hand formed and developed in my own workshop. I also set my own stones and string my own pearls.


Some of my work is oxidised to form contrasting elements. My work ranges from bold neck pieces featuring 100mm links and Kinetic rings standing 85mm tall, to 5mm studs.
