I was born in Devon and grew up on a farm on the northern edge of Dartmoor, an area which still provides the inspiration for much of my work.

Loving the organic flowing lines of the Art Nouveau period, I use the translucent colours of semi-precious stones, rainbow hues of opals and subtle contrasts of silver and gold, along with river pearls and mother-of-pearl to bring richness and variety to my jewellery.

All my work is made by hand with particular attention to fine detail. No casting is involved, so each piece is unique.

I like to create jewellery which is feminine and exciting, believing it equally important that it is both comfortable and a joy to wear.

My work has been commissioned by clients in America, Canada, Australia, Japan & Europe, and exhibited throughout Britain and in Canberra, Australia.

In 2001 I was awarded the Brufords Jewellery Prize for my collection of work in the South West Acadamy of Fine & Applied Arts Open Exhibition. The prize money went towards funding a trip, to visit an opal mine in Coober Pedy, South Australia

I have been a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, recently renamed MAKE Southwest, since 1982.
