I am a self taught jewellery maker -self taught with the help of countless lovely people, books and youtube video's - specialising in wire jewellery. My favourite wires are copper and bronze.
With so much artistic talent in my family, I was beginning to despair of ever finding my ability. Then I learned to crochet. I find crocheting with fine wire exceptionally relaxing and love to just follow the flow of the piece and see what transpires. I progressed to working with different gauge wires, and am now enjoying wire weaving and metal smithing.
The wire tends to dictate the style as I work, and for that reason, each piece of my wire jewellery is unique and individual.
I also make jewellery and other items using a varied media such as semi-precious gemstones, freshwater and shell…
