I can design and make pieces with your requirements, for example with a cherished tin that you send to me, a popular service for many of my past customers, or I can make you something in pure tin. Check out my website www.fluxplay.co.uk to see videos of my automaton jewellery and find out more about me.

I'm a proud member of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. http://www.acj.org.uk/
