What inspired you to become a jewellery designer?
|Most of my family are artists and musicians so I started to explore my creativity from a young age, but I started to be intrigued by metalwork when studying art and design at college. I loved all the different tools and machinery and how much skill goes into creating one piece of jewellery, I was also interested in the possibility of mixing different materials, therefore decided to go onto university and study Contemporary jewellery and silversmithing.
|What is your favourite piece of jewellery? (either made or purchased)
I love the 'Orbit Necklace' because of its abstract sculptural shape it looks elegant when worn and the contrast between the oxidized chain and silver looks extra special!
|Which celebrity would you love to wear your jewellery and why?
|I would LOVE Alexa Chung to wear my jewellery because she has great style and taste in fashion, so I have faith she would wear it with the perfect outfit!
Or I would choose Yukimi Nagano from the band little dragon, because I have always liked her music and she has a very unique look.
|Out-with jewellery is there any other career that you would love to try?
|I enjoy travelling, photography and teaching, so if I could travel; teach people how to make jewellery and take photo's that would be a pretty good 2nd choice to jewellery.. but for the moment making jewellery is my main priority!
|What can we expect to see from you in the future?
|I am currently in the process of designing a brand new collection which will be mixing metal and fabric using lots of different techniques such as etching, electro-forming and casting!
