After 16 years of designing, making and teaching jewellery, I am delighted to now be in my new studio at Cottage 6, Castle Yard, Ilkley. Here I can teach jewellery making as well as showcase my work. I first studied Jewellery and 3D design at Bradford and Craven College in 2002.
I am inspired by nature and landscapes. I work mainly in silver using traditional silversmithing techniques and I enjoy the creative process as every piece is hand made and no two pieces are the same. I like to make something special and unique for a customer, adding a birthstone or hand stamping the piece with text.
In my latest collection I reflect the shape, textures and patterns found in pebbles. Some pebbles are set like precious stones and turned into rings and pendants. My Ilkley Moor Jewellery has an organic feel, motifs are embedded into rock textured silver, just like the cup and rings found on the Ilkley Moor Rocks.
You can make an appointment to view my work or If you would like to learn the basics of jewellery making and make a special piece of keepsake jewellery you can book a workshop with me at my studio.
