I live in a tiny Fen-edge village where grassland, woodland and wetland meet. The birds and plants in this rich landscape are a constant source of inspiration for the fine silver jewellery that I make.
I make my jewellery in a beach-hut like studio in my garden. It is a truly lovely place to work.
I have been making jewellery since I was very small. I recently found a story that I had written when I was six about making a necklace from tiny glass beads.
I have always loved ceramics and a fascination with their surface texture was sparked when I attended an evening class with Bonnie Kemske. I began making jewellery with silver clay in 2008. It is a ceramic containing particles of silver and when it is fired it leaves fine silver (99%). I use it to make one-off nature- and craft-inspired pieces.
I am a participating member of the Cambridge Open Studios, a group of over 200 artists who open their studios to the public every July. You can find out more about Cambridge Open Studios here.
