I have been making jewellery and silversmithing for 8 years now, including my degree at Glasgow School of Art proceeding into a postgrad at Bishopsland. In that time I was exploring jewellery design and later specialised in box making, which I have received awards for. My passion for box making comes from the aspect of discovery that they can hold, a box is an object that can fit in the palm of your hand, however once opened reveals sentimental value and treasure hidden within, through detailed work internally. I am drawn to movement, lines and irregular patterns in natural forms from the beaches near my home in Scotland, translating these elements into my work. I predominantly work in silver and occasionally in gold to add another tone of colour to the website. I love bringing a hint of colour to the subtle silver, whether that be a strip of gold, enamel or adding a stone. I create my work in a shared workshop in Bristol where I have recently moved to from Scotland.
