Nestled in Nottingham, the heart of the UK, I create eclectic, original pieces of sterling silver jewellery using traditional silversmithing techniques.
My story began aged 15 when my metalwork teacher at school asked if I would like to become his apprentice for a while and learn goldsmithing techniques. Whilst my peers were off drinking and dancing the nights away I spent many many evenings melting metal, snapping saw blades and cutting my hands to shreds. I was taught invaluable lessons in soldering, stone setting and the ways of metal, something that would stay with me forever.
I had a big break from metal smithing throughout my twenties, however metalsmithing is a deep rooted love within my soul – I am fortunate enough now to be full time silversmith and to work out of my home studio buried away at the bottom of my garden in the heart of Nottinghamshire.
I am inspired by the world around me, I love collecting gemstones, old and quirky things and especially sharing the departed wild creatures that I have found along my travels over the past few years. Preserving my finds is a passion that I find hard to put into words - finding beauty in death and getting to share my finds for all to see and enjoy brings me an incredible amount of joy.
All animals used in my British Curio Collection are British birds and mammals I have found on walks or have been gifted to me by licensed taxidermists, I adhere to all regulations in accordance with the UK Wildlife & Countryside Act of 1981 and pride myself on this being an ethically sourced collection. I am eternally grateful to have the opportunity of sharing my creations.
