Hi, I’m a creative Designer based in the Northwest and I love to make Silver mixed media jewellery and handmade felt work. My main passion is for textiles and I have been working with Felt for the past 7 years as it is very versatile as it incorporates an exciting range of techniques and skills.
I have always been fascinated in creating things from a young age as art has played great comforted and therapy in my life especially during my recovery of childhood leukaemia. My sisters friend introduced me to jewellery making during my recovery and I haven’t looked back since as I have now been making jewellery for over 15 years and still enjoy it.
Art was my favourite subject at school and I remember my art teacher said to me once “There is no point doing a job you don’t enjoy” which stuck with me and I new from then on I wanted to be an Artist. I went on to Art college and studied silver Smithing and photography along the way which all play apart in the way I work today. This mixture of skills inspired me to experiment and push the boundaries with various materials and techniques helping me to create unique bespoke designs.
Designing and creating never fails to inspire me as I love the feeling when you get an idea and the excitement it brings as you can’t wait to jot it down and get started. I have always been proud of creating unique and unusual ideas that separated my work from the high street designs and have developed my own techniques and style along the way.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it.
