I particularly like using a contrast of texture or colour in my jewellery by, for example, adding gold or semi precious stones to a silver piece, or by oxidizing the background of a three dimensional item. Influences come from many different areas as I like to continually evolve and develop new styles and try different techniques.
The Materials used in this collection are mainly :- Sterling Silver (925) Fine Silver (999) 9ct, 18ct or 22ct Gold for decoration, Semi precious stones e.g. Garnets, Amethyst and Opals, and sometimes Leather. See description of individual items.
Hallmarking I am registered with Goldsmiths’ Hall, London and have many of my items hallmarked. This depends on the weight, size and shape of the item. Items under 7.78g do not legally need to be hallmarked but many of my pieces are.
