Whskr Art and Design

I am British and live in New Zealand at the moment. I create in my own studio at home and an discovering the joys and and complexities of chainmaille. I love collecting vintage charms to incorporate into my jewellery making each one special and unique.

I am helped and hindered in equal measure by the family of cats who enjoy sharing our home and our garden. Thanks to them I never feel alone even when I am busy working in my studio listening to an audio book or some music.

I am a volunteer at our local Upper Hutt Animal Rescue (find them on Facebook!) and find their dedication and care of the animals in their care a huge inspiration.
