I design and make jewellery in fine silver and gold wire inspired by linear motifs and forms.
A lifelong fascination with ‘threads’, both literal and metaphorical, has led me to explore the design possibilities of working with fine silver and gold, most recently towards the technique of melting precious metal, drawing it down to fine wire threads for sewing and knitting. My palette is typically a combination of contrasting black and white silver and coloured golds. With a technical background in textile crafts, particularly hand knitting, combined with training in traditional metalworking I enjoy experimenting with unorthodox combinations of craft disciplines and skills. Based in north London, I have lived and worked in London all my life.
