"I create narrative jewellery which is quirky but also has a personal touch. Each piece I make is treated like a story book burying secret meanings beneath the surface. 

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2012. However, my jewellery making did not start at Art school. I did plan on being a lead guitar player, but that’s another story.


My jewellery journey began over 14 years ago. It’s been an interesting journey so far, and has led me to live and work in several different countries, such as Canada and Holland, where I was fortunate enough to work with some very talented jewellers. This experience brought further jewellery skills, a love for different cultures, oh, and a bit of the old Dutch language too. This probably makes me some kind of travelling jeweller"
