My jewellery is inspired by blacksmithing, both by traditional forging techniques and by the detail in wrought iron work patterns. I select a few interesting details from an ornate pattern, which I then refine and stylise down to a jewellery scale, showing off the simple beauty of forms that were previously lost in the pattern.
My designs are often lead by the process of forging itself as with each hammer blow the metal moves in a new direction inspiring fresh ideas. This spontaneous idiosyncrasy of forging means each piece of my jewellery is unique. I like to highlight the beauty and preciousness of silver with small, selectively polished surfaces in place of gems, surrounded by beautiful satin finishes.
I also use with finely hammered facets to evoke the sparkles of cut gem stones. My collection is contemporary, interesting and unusual while at the same time being simple, understated and very comfortable to wear.
