I took up silver smithing and jewellery making as a hobby when I got fed up with not being able to find the pieces I wanted. It has grown from there starting with friends and family requesting pieces to go with specific outfits for weddings and parties and now I'm turning it into my career. I'm more than happy to discuss the possibility of commissions so that you can have something special made to go with an outfit.
As a former chemist I find myself drawn to interesting stones, I can get a bit geeky about crystal formations and specific elements causing colours, I also enjoy travelling and bringing back unusual stones to incorporate into my work.
