My work is about personal expression and lyrical vision. I’m preoccupied with crystalising my inner world into the outside world. In my jewellery I draw on imagery from my paintings, journals and dreams. I like to make jewellery that is heavy and sensual; the wearer feels the weight of it like a Queen feels the weight of her crown.
Tokens, symbols, omens. The wonderment and mystery of life is found in the drama and tension of the ordinary if we open our eyes to it.
