Based in rural Scotland, I find inspiration in my surroundings, both in terms of the man-made and the natural.
Structure, frameworks and contrasts are the basis for my jewellery.
My debut collection is based on the visual imagery generated from photography and artwork produced in response to the glasshouses in Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
I use a combination of silver, semi-precious stones and resin, and employ traditional metalworking methods as well as textile techniques, such as crochet and needlework. There is no written pattern for the crocheted fragments ensuring that these pieces of jewellery are unique.
You can find my work at Maspie House Gallery in Falkland, Fife, Tayberry Gallery, Perth, Alchemia, St Andrews, Alchemia, Edinburgh, Scottish Antiques & Art Centre at Abernyte, Neo Design, Dundee, and Cecilia Colman Gallery, St Johns Wood, London.
