From an early age I have been fascinated by ancient cultures and their artifacts. I have always had an interest in ancient jewellery especially that from the Byzantine era.
I have translated this inspiration into wearable, sophisticated works of jewellery. My work uses a combination of ancient techniques such as granulation, chasing and repousse, lapidary and mokume gane.
I love to incorporate pattern and texture into each of my pieces whether it comes from the stone, pattern in the alloy or granules that I add to each piece. I love the idea of layering several patterns and textures together to see the harmony they create.
This sense of design combines contemporary with the best of ancient techniques delivering pieces that are commanding when viewed, dramatic when worn.
