My love for jewellery making started over 30 years ago, whilst living in London. I would often be popping to vintage markets, live music events, art and craft fairs and trawling bead shops in Portobello market.

Initially I adored playing with vintage glass and unique beads, large 80's stylie ones, until I moved away from London to have my family.  As my children grew I  followed my aspirations and became a goldsmith, having found work in a local jewellers. Here I gained invaluable experience learning on the job as a jobbing jeweller, working on repairs and bespoke commissions. Being in love with the trade I went on to further train in London’s famous Hatton Garden gaining a Diploma in Jewellery Manufacture and Design. 

Today you will most certainly find me with a cat or 6 on my knee, whilst at my bench in my studio based in Essex.
