I trained for four years at the Birmingham School of Jewellery (UCE) as a jewellery designer / maker
Worked for major top end of marked jewellery company as head designer, selling work in Harrods, Goldsmiths, Asprays etc etc
Began teaching jewellery to adults in 2000, and working on art & crafts projects with children in about 2001.

Almost all of the silver & gold I use in my jewellery is recycled. I will not use diamonds because of human rights atrocities surrounded by the mining industry.
I take inspiration from a variety of sources, including Mexican art, Manga, Victorian Memento mori.
