About

I am a jewellery designer/maker living in the beautiful High Peak. I am a member of The Gallery, New Mills, an art and craft co-operative with gallery space where I sell my work. I am also a member of the High Peak Artists and Craftworkers, who exhibit in the Gallery in the Gardens in Buxton.

I collect sea glass, I am fascinated by these beautiful little gems from the ocean and think that they look amazing when mixed with sterling silver. I love the secret history that these little treasures have. Each piece has its own story and I try to convey a sense of the ocean in my designs.

I design and forge the sterling silver which holds the seaglass and often incorporate my signature "ripple" to represent a journey through the waves.

Much of my sea glass comes from beaches in County Durham where a Victorian glassworks emptied it's "end of day" glass waste into the sea. Decades later this has been worn by the waves into these tiny gem like pieces.

Many more of my pieces are designed using Cornish seaglass and pebbles from the "shipwreck" beaches.

I also like to work with Anodised Aluminium which I hand print and dye myself using botanical designs and garden themes. These are great fun to make and I love the use of colour in the designs and the freedom to experiment!

I take inspiration for my pieces from the wonders of the natural world. I love simple organic shapes and the subtle colours of the sea and coastline.

I love to create unique pieces for my customers and think that everyone deserves something special.
