I set up my workshop in 2002 after finishing my degree and post graduate course in jewellery at Edinburgh College Of Art. Since then I have exhibited internationally, taken part in various shows, and worked to commission.
Colour is an essential element in my work. Working with resin I create my own colour palette by mixing pigments. Depending on the collection I'm working on I can create a bold, clashing palette, or a softer, sophisticated palette . Layering translucent resin over opaque helps achieve a richer finish and a wider colour range too. By patterning either one or both layers I can produce diverse effects.
I want the wearer to enjoy wearing my jewellery and appreciate the little extra details I incorporate. For instance some pieces are reversible for an added surprise. Others have magnets set within which allows bangles to stick together in sets, or ring tops to be swapped. Mis-matching is another strong element of my jewellery, adding to the unique feeling of my pieces.
