Silver, copper and enamelled jewellery and small metalwork, using reclaimed and recycled metal
I work in copper, silver and enamel and use recycled or reclaimed metal, wherever possible. My work is frequently nostalgic, taking inspiration from book illustrations, maps, vintage ceramics and fabrics. I like to combine traditional metal working & enamelling techniques with collage and digital design tools. Previously based at Flameworks Creative Arts Facility, in Devon, I moved to Wales in 2017 and currently have a studio on Western Avenue, in Cardiff. I sell my work online via my Folksy store, through monthly markets at the Bridge Studios and through selected shops and galleries.
Having my own studio allows me to run small-group workshops in enamelling and jewellery making. Students at the workshops enjoy the creative atmosphere, the opportunity to use a range of metal working tools and the chance to learn a new skill or just try something different. I love seeing the range of things that students make as well as the ideas and creativity that they bring to the workshops. The small group sessions ensure that everyone gets the attention they deserve and everyone goes home with one or more completed items of jewellery. I am always happy to welcome visitors to my studio and I enjoy the chance to talk about my work, regardless of whether or not you are looking to buy a piece of jewellery
My work is available to buy online, as well as from the shops and galleries listed below. You can buy from me in person at fairs and events throughout the year. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for the latest information about events that I will be attending.
