I am a Jewellery Designer and work in Kirk Langley Derbyshire. My inspiration is nature particularly textures for example tree bark, acorns, flowers and shells, which I collect.
I have a plethora of things I have collected over the years in my studio that I may use in my designs. For example if it is a fragile dried flower I electroform it with copper to thicken it up before producing a sterling silver form or photo etch a tree bark pattern onto silver.
My work includes necklaces, pendants, cufflinks and earrings. I work with silver, gold and semi-precious stones.
