I am a self-taught jeweller based in Edinburgh. My jewellery includes different collections in silver and 9ct/18ct gold, mixed metals, precious / semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls as well as cut and rough diamonds.
I just love jewellery, it is a reflection of the wearer‘s personality or mood. And I love the idea that there is only one piece, as unique as the person wearing it. My one-off collections are inspired by all sorts of things, nature, art, conversations, materials themselves …and by chance.
I haven’t had any training, evening classes or courses and have taught myself by reading books, trial and error and a lot of hit and miss. I draw inspiration from almost anything,
nature, architecture, art, conversations and the material I use, stones sometimes dictate a certain way of setting, but I love to experiment and also to see what happens if I let
materials „do their own thing“. Often commissions inspire, they can be challenging , which I love, or there is so little/much in a customer’s brief that a lot of designing/creating is
involved, which then can lead to new inspirations. Sometimes making mistakes creates something new and exciting too.
All my pieces are handmade one off pieces, that are as unique as the people who wear them and of as high a standard and quality as I can produce. My pieces might not be as perfect as some machine made ones, but they are made by a human being for human beings.
