With colour, comes joy…
My jewellery experiments with colour, exploring different colour blends to create unique and striking designs. Vivid hand printed anodised aluminium and rich coloured sea glass combine with clean simple silver shapes and lines to contain yet enhance the colour.
Based in beautiful rural Dorset, I work from my tiny studio, in my little garden which bursts with colour in the summer. My inspiration comes from the gorgeous colours and patterns that occur naturally in nature and I reflect those in more linear and abstract forms in the way I print my anodised aluminium.
My work combines traditional silversmithing with contemporary metalsmithing. I relish that the results from the hand dyeing process are unpredictable. It means that no two pieces will ever look the same, creating endless possibilities of patterns and colour. I enjoy cutting and setting the aluminium and sea glass in novel and unexpected ways creating something bold, individual and uplifting.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
