I am a jewellery artist and teacher based in London, UK. My work explores the tactile nature of jewellery to create art in the form of contemporary talismans.
Having been making jewellery since the mid-1990s, and teaching jewellery making since 2009, I have become increasingly aware of the therapeutic benefits of creative activities. This has inspired my current body of work that explores ways of creating jewels that have the potential to be amulets or talismans to enable therapeutic benefits for their wearers.
My jewellery pieces are designed to be elegant and entice, as well as being especially tactile and 'finger friendly' to encourage the wearer to use more of their senses and connect with the physical (rather than digital) world for a while..
As well as creating my own jewellery, I am an adult education teacher, teaching many different aspects of jewellery making.
I can help you create your own unique pieces of jewellery, using a variety of different techniques, working both with complete beginners as well as more experienced hobby or professional jewellers.
