My jewellery is informed by the desire to explore colour, texture and form. I take this primarily from my research drawings and photography which focus on a number of subjects from allotment buildings to museum artefacts, subjects that depict an interesting construction and a timeworn appearance.
I attempt to construct these forms in an abstracted way through the folding and manipulation of a single flat surface. Using both traditional and contemporary techniques and processes, I work with enamel to build on the metals surface. This, integrated with my own mark making which captures the drawn qualities of my research, is channelled into creating a surface that has a quality that is both engaging to the touch and to the eye.
