I’m a contemporary jeweller with over 16 years of experience in the jewellery industry. With a BA in Metalwork & Silversmithing from UAL in 2006 I soon after stepped into making contemporary jewellery after meeting and working with local jeweller Lisa Castle – Castle Collection.
Metal Lust describes the jewellery I love to make without putting boundaries on my creativity. My jewellery collections are an emporium of treasures exploring iconic themes of imagery like lightening bolts and eyes and making everyday objects into precious keepsakes.
I love the physical processes of silversmithing; hammering down wire into geometric forms, embossing intricate textures and setting semi-precious stones. I’m continually honing my skills and learning new techniques.
I began teaching in 2019 at Castle Collection. I love to share my knowledge and It’s a great moment when you unlock the secret of how something is made.
Making jewellery is creatively satisfying and can also be a great mindful practice.
In our classes I’m here guide students at each stage; showing them how to use tools correctly and build on their skill set – it’s a very accessible fun thing to do!
