I started to realise that people often spend time fidgeting with jewellery, sometimes for comfort or just while day dreaming, even if they realise it or not. I found this very interesting and it inspired me to create a collection of wearable jewellery that is also very tactile - pieces that want to be touched as well as look aesthetically pleasing; quirky and fun pieces with tiny movable parts, fidgety bits and textured elements. The result is not only a decorative piece, but a fun, interactive wearable piece of jewellery.
I make my pieces in silver and they come in either a dark oxidised finish or a polished silver finish.
I studied at York College, completing an ND + HND in 3D Design Crafts, and then studied at Sheffield Hallam University completing a BA (Hons) in Metalwork and Jewellery. Since university I set up my own fully equipped jewellery studio where I work on commissions and restocking my outlets and also regularly attend craft fairs throughout the UK.
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.
