Handmade silver jewellery inspired by the coast and the natural world

I have been a keen crafts person all my life and always had a passion for silver jewellery. In 2011 I was lucky enough to be able to embark on a silversmithing course and give up my previous career in IT to find my creative side again.

I have a workshop at my home in Norfolk, where I design and create my pieces from silver, copper and brass. Each piece is individually made by hand, and although designs may be similar, every one is unique.

My other passions are photography and walking my Springer Spaniel in the countryside and at the beach where I gain inspiration for many of my designs.

I sell my work on line, at selected craft fairs and more recently, in a gallery.
