JEWELLERY FOR THE ORIGINAL
I am a multi award winning young British jewellery designer maker and a graduate of the prestigious Birmingham School of Jewellery - born in Cambridgeshire currently living in Birmingham UK. I have a love of all things dark, macabre and outlandish; my work is an extension of this, built on the idea of escapism, I often take inspiration from natural objects of a dark subject and manipulate their curves until they are almost unrecognizable of the initial form but still hold some of its striking qualities with a sci-fi fantasy edge. Every curve and line is carefully considered so that each piece catches the eye at every angle, creating a perfectly unique wearable sculpture to empower its wearer; where sweeping curves meet at sharp points with a distinctive contemporary gothic style.
My work is designed for EVERYONE seeking to make a bold and original statement. Individuals, passionate about design, who do not follow the crowd but create their own style whilst making sustainable choices. As much as I love jewellery I always found it hard to feel a connection with much of the jewellery that is available today as it is often poorly made, mass produced throw away pieces – It is my desire to to create a jewellery collection that stands apart from this saturated over produced fast fashion market. My jewellery is extremely personal, every element of my work is artistically thought out to be unique in design and perfect in functionality and quality. I design, create, polish and package every piece of my work from my workshop based in the historic Birmingham jewellery quarter. Where possible I use 100% recycled precious metals and ethically sourced materials as well as cruelty free workshop products as I do in my personal life. My jewellery is timeless in design and holds my unchanging signature style – I DO NOT follow fast fashion, my jewellery is made to last the test of time in design and quality. Every piece bears the stamp of the British hallmark as well as my makers mark to show its authenticity.
