[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]
My design approach is based on experimental methodologies, i have a passion for juxtaposing unusual and an unexpected mix of materials using a myriad of making processes in order to create thought provoking jewellery. By using chemical processes like electroforming, etching and patination i am able to create biological inspired surfaces. This is then combined with natural objects, which have been rehabilitated by materials like silicones, resins and latex. The tactile nature of my work aims to connect people with textures and revaluate how they perceive preciousness through materials. My range consists of brooches, rings, and necklaces all combined with precious metals.

Based at Middleport pottery in Stoke-on-trent (ST6 3PE) as apart of a collective called fourMAKERS@no.5 in an open studio.
