“My inspiration stems from concepts of visual literacy, and specifically, the idea of balance. Using these visual literacy theories we can break down our ‘ways of seeing’ into the simplest form – shape, colour, pattern etc. and this has always really appealed to me.
I try to communicate a personal sense of ‘balance’ through my work using geometric shapes, composition, colour and materials – creating simple contemporary jewellery.
I work with enamel, and enjoy experimenting with material relationships – whether that’s combining a material with enamel; using enamel on a different material; or simply attempting to mimic a material in enamel, such as stone or concrete. I like to use traditional enamelling skills, such as cloisonné, while always trying to put my own personal stamp on the technique.”
