My Bio

Inspired as a child to make jewellery when I was bought a bead weaving loom one Christmas, my style has changed dramatically over the years, from simple strung necklaces into what you see today.

I have always loved working with semi precious stones and wire, for many years I have experimented with different ways of combining the two. The jewellery on these pages have been influenced by the designer Eni Oken who has helped me to harness the natural beauty of the stones and compliment them with silver wire work.

Each piece has lots and lots of hand coiled wire, no glue or solder is used just ancient methods of coiling and weaving.

I now divide my time between making jewellery and writing tutorials for my designs, if there is a piece that you have seen and would like to learn how to make, but can't find the tutorial, just let me know and I will see what I can do. I am also a freelance writer for 'Making Jewellery' magazine and have had several projects published. My first book is due to be published later this year by the Guild of Mastercrafstmen.

I am constantly on the hunt for new inspiration and fresh ideas and my current adventure is into the world of 3D construction.

My tutorials and designs are avaliable at the following sites, if you would like to take a peek Big Smile
