Hello and welcome to my Jewellery Store
Jewellery is my passion

I am a Jeweller working from my studio in Derbyshire. My inspiration comes from textures. For example I find things in my garden such as Hydrangea flowers or a Quince that I bring back into the house to dry which brings out the texture. I have sought to reproduce these interesting textures in my work and in order to bring refinement I often combine the texture with a smooth surface to create contrast, sometimes adding a gemstone or gold highlight.

In 1996 I studied part time Silver Smithing in Derby in order to accommodate being a busy mum to three boys. In approximately 2002 I moved on to study at the world renowned Birmingham School of Jewellery.

In August 2017 I  was honoured to have my work featured in a four page article in the Derbyshire Life magazine.

Prime Minister Theresa May wore a necklace I made while giving a speech at the dispatch box in the House of Commons, at the European Summit 2019 and when she gave her emotional resignation speech outside number 10.

My work includes necklaces, pendants, cufflinks and ear rings.
