About my work
The striking rock textures of south Devon's landscape influence my jewellery. Formed by huge volcanic forces and pounded over time by waves and water, their surfaces are pitted, ridged and furrowed. I'm interested in how metals too can be manipulated and textured. I use a method of die-printing: piercing, punching and hammering textured papers to create my dies before roller-printing them onto precious metal. I combine this method with traditional goldsmithing techniques such as forming, forging and fusing. I am a Fairtrade-registered jeweller working in Fairtrade gold, recycled silver, recycled glass and responsibly sourced gemstones.
