Profile:

After many years of making jewellery in Cornwall the experience of uprooting and living in Australia for seven years caused a momentous shift in my creative process. The act of travelling translated into my work which became much freer, more immediate and intuitive. I now work directly into my preferred materials: silver and 18ct. yellow gold which I often combine with labradorite, moonstone, opal, pearl, tourmaline or diamond. Art Nouveau and Ancient Egypt have been lasting influences and recently I have become fascinated by the Auroras and all things Polar. The first piece of work on this theme is a forged silver ring with the image of a polar bear and a labradorite stone.
