I am a jewellery designer and silversmith based at Yorkshire Artspace in Sheffield. I recently graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a Master of Arts Degree in Design (Jewellery & Metalwork), with Distinction. My work aims to capture the essence of beauty, fragility and preciousness of details found in the botanical landscape, usually overlooked unless one stops to pause allowing time for closer observation. My inspiration comes from the natural world; in particular in my own locality. I am drawn to the intricate, delicate structural details of botanical specimens found bordering the urban environment, growing from the cracks in the pavement by the roadside, and from the rural green landscape in beautiful wild meadows, woodlands, hedgerows and gardens and the weather beaten coastline of Great Britain.
I collage and juxtapose diverse materials to create balance and harmony in the wearable jewellery pieces and decorative objects I make. My work is imbued with a sense of calm and serenity, as a comment on the importance of connectedness to nature and its therapeutic benefits for wellbeing.

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.
