Although I originally trained as a Theatrical Prop Maker at Wimbledon School of Art, I have always enjoyed making both costume and fashion jewellery but started working in silver about 10 years ago.
I create pieces of jewellery that are inspired and influenced by my interest in bygone eras, historical artefacts and artistic movements as well as nature and natural forms. My designs frequently touch on the past whilst responding to contemporary styling, pieces can be delicate but also simple and striking as well as bold and dramatic.

I use sterling or fine silver with occasional accents of gold. I am very proud to have my work hallmarked at the Goldsmiths’ Hall Assay Office, London. To me it denotes standard and quality but I am often asked what all the symbols mean so, here is a brief explanation.
CBB is my registered Maker’s Mark, the Britannia Lion denotes British made Sterling Silver and 925 states that the silver is assayed as 925 parts pure silver out of every 1000. The London Assay Office symbol is the leopard and the letter denotes the year of assay which changes every year.
