My garden studio is modelled on a Southwold beach hut and it's where I make most of my jewellery. In the summer I keep the doors open. It's a lovely place to work.
My garden is a constant source of inspiration for my jewellery-making. I have a let-live attitude to all the seedlings that emerge. This means that many of the plants and flowers in my garden are self-seeded. It's a jumbly kind of garden but I like it that way and I love to sketch the flowers and leaves and make them in silver.
I have found that the following flowering plants self seed easily: aquilegias (Granny's bonnet), dog daisies (Leucanthemum), feverfew, red valerian, forget-me-nots, cow parsley, cornflowers, poppies (Californian and native hybrids), marigolds.
