Using traditional goldsmithing skills, I create highly tactile, detailed jewellery through experimentation with surface texture and pattern in precious metal. I strive to use the age old techniques of traditional goldsmithing to create contemporary, striking and edgy jewellery with clean lines and interesting embellishment.
