I find inspiration from ancient art, organic shapes and nature. I start my sketching my ideas, then create them using my main tools, my hands. I bend, shape, twist, wrap and sew with copper wire, add beads, vintage buttons and pieces of fused glass to create unique sculptural jewellery and accessories.
I combine working as a designer-maker with teaching jewellery making and sell my work at events, exhibitions and galleries. In 2016 from March to October, I will be opening my studio-workshop to the public for one afternoon each month – further details www.jewelleryartist.co.uk/events
