After studying textiles at art college in Norwich, I set up my own business selling my textile jewellery which I created by knitting with silver and copper wire. My work was very sculptural and unusual inspired by the natural structures that surround me in my garden every day. I was really able to get to know my materials and create pieces that were often a work of art as well as a piece of jewellery.
I have always been one to keep on creating and not just making and so I have begun manipulating wire in other ways than knitting to produce tiny little flowers and plants. Being left with boxes of knitted samples and bits of metal and wire and also having a habit of picking up any rusty piece of metal that I find, I decided it was time to try and create without buying anything. Using only the materials that I have in my studio or find. Hence the emergence of the fairies.
