I live on the Brighton sea side in England. It's a treasure trove of antiques and vintage oddities. This is complemented by a great community of artists and general creative types who make the city a wonderful place to live. So I draw a lot of inspiration from my beautiful place of abode, and its people & culture.
I'm originally Sri Lankan so I also incorporate a lot of South Asian flavour.
I make all sorts and I love a challenge when it comes to turning junk into beautiful and useful items. I love it when things are both beautiful and functional.
I started making steampunk jewellery when my Dad gave me a pile of old clock parts and watches which had got caught in the 2004 South Asian Tsunami - He owns a shop in Southern Sri Lanka which was badly damaged by the Tsunami. There's so much joy in turning such a tragedy into…
