My jewellery is mostly inspired by personal history and our surroundings, by capturing a piece of antique lace or a budding twig and immortalizing it in silver allowing it to be held close to the heart. My recent work is focusing on the antique lace collection, by scouring antique markets and using textiles from far off lands such as Israel, Spain and Japan this allows me to bring a piece of history to life, collecting stories and memories in the process. Each piece has a background, and speaks differently to each person who wears one of my designs.

Enjoy!
