I am a maker based in Dartmoor. I predominantly work with sterling silver, incorporating copper, brass and gold detailing. My range includes bangles, earrings, necklaces, rings, cufflinks and tie pins, as well as bespoke, one-off pieces featuring gemstones.
I utilise natural products from Cornwall and Dartmoor, combing beaches, woods and wild places to find the shells, coral, sea glass, feathers, lichen and curiosities that feature heavily within my work, colouring the range with individuality and an organic feel. I also recycle antique sterling silver sugar tongs and Victorian ceramic chips and incorporate them into modern designs.
My aim is to create jewellery that is unique, personal and reflective of the natural places that inspire and surround me so each wearer can own an original piece that both interests and excites.

Inspiration

Kennall Vale is a valley either side of the River Kennall which is both a nature reserve and a site of great historical interest having a wealth of industrial archaeological features, tucked away in the of Ponsanooth area between Redruth and Falmouth.
The history of the vale is fascinating. Kennall Mills were a great producer of gunpowder for the mining industry from 1812 being one of only two gunpowder works operating in Cornwall at this time. At the peak of its production in the 1860s the Kennall Company employed over 50 men.

The Kennall Company not only ran the Gunpowder Works but also owned 2 paper mills, a farm and a number of cottages in the locality, a thriving enterprise until it started to wain in the 1880s due to the collapse of the mining industry and the invention and production of alternatives to gunpowder, namely dynamite and gelignite.
