I have always enjoyed using my hands and working on projects to create something beautiful. As a little girl I was forever drawing and making things. My mothers’ button box was a treasure trove of odds and ends, and I can still conjure up that very same childhood smell of when the tin lid came off to reveal an eclectic mix of buttons, beads, diamante and clasps.
Since making Canada my new home, I have come full circle, and returned to the jewellery bench, and I’m making great use again of my Arts Degree, and the years spent in the Jewellery and Silversmithing trade in the UK. I’m thrilled to be indulging once more in my passion for designing and creating beautiful jewellery.
Silver is my favourite metal to wear and to work with because I love the way it feels, and changes dramatically through the processes it goes though on the bench. Inspiration comes from many places, and I tend to create nature inspired pieces. Creatures and flowers are favourites, although I love taking my customers ideas and creating something beautiful to fit the brief. Designs are often thought through whilst walking through the magnificent Rattray Marshes or along the many trails around Mississauga with my dog, Evie.
