I am a Scottish jewellery designer who graduated in 2006 with BDes (Hons) Jewellery & Metal Design from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design. I also have an HND and NC in Jewellery Design from Cardonald College. I have been designing and making bespoke jewellery since 1999. Contact me if you would like something unique made, including wedding and engagement rings. I have been nominated as Best Scottish Artist or Designer at the Scottish Variety Awards 2012.
I am passionate about designing and making jewellery and thrive to produce bespoke, superbly produced handcrafted pieces. As jewellery has a personal and sentimental value I love taking on commissions or can give new life to an old piece of jewellery using your own ideas.
One of my designs - the Labyrinth Neckpiece attracted a Precious Metal Bursary Award from the Goldsmith's Company.
Architecture is a major influence in my work which inspires both geometric forms and organic sculptures. Movement is also a prominent force where rare coloured stones can be moved along the labyrinths of my work. My pieces are tactile, playful and sculptural. Natural rock formations influence the texture and layering of many of my designs. The Scottish landscape has influenced some of the curves and shapes of pendants.
I enjoy working with precious metals such as silver and gold. I love using unusually shaped stones and I set them in innovative ways into many of my one-off pieces. However, I also experiment in incorporating non-precious materials such as plastics; glass and resins too. I create innovative designs by adjusting them to suit the needs of my clients, every piece is unique. I am constantly challenging the boundaries of jewellery design, producing both one-off and commercial pieces.
