A huge part of my designs are influenced by textiles and haberdashery, stemming from a fascination that grew from admiring my Grandma's talents and fond memories of sorting through her button stash. You will find cotton reels (hallmarked in such a way as to reflect the labelling found on vintage bobbins) and thimbles, to various button inspired pieces including the use of vintage and found buttons.
My work also reflects a penchant for old and found objects and I love incorporating such finds into my jewellery where I can.
You will see this vintage influence in my presentation and display too.
My work combines my two passions – jewellery and textiles – with the third essential element of my memories, observations and personality.
