It was a special moment to be contacted by the National Army Museum in Chelsea, London wanting to buy my Equestrian Jewellery Collection in its entirety. It was featured in conjunction with their Major Special Exhibition "War Horse - Fact & Fiction" running from October 2011 - February 2013, to be part of an exhibition such as this has been a highlight in my career as a silversmith.
I have a definite penchant for the Art Deco era with its contemporary sleek and clean lines. There is an almost timeless element to the geometric forms that transcends the decades. However, living and working near the Jurassic coast in Dorset, I cannot fail to be inspired by the beauty of the surrounding countryside. I find the minimal aesthetic and timeless elegance of the 1920 - 30’s design is not only prevalent within my Distinctly Deco Collection, but automatically flows throughout my sister collections. I do love experimenting with new procedures and skills and enjoy evolving of my own unique style of jewellery.
Profile and C.V.
Having studied for a BSC (Hons) degree, it wasn't until I enrolled with a private silversmithing school in Hampshire in 2005 that I knew where my creative vocation lay. Having always been inspired by design / fashion and possessing a desire for owning all things Art Deco, it was a natural progression to combine silversmithing with this love.
In 2008 I took the step to build my studio, which can be seen above and began selling my jewellery at various events, outlets and through my Online Shop
