I have been in the jewellery trade for 20 years. The workshop environment was a great way to learn the many varied techniques of jewellery making in a traditional way. From repairing and resizing, to restoring a family heirloom, to designing and then making a final piece, there was always something new to learn.
It’s always special making a diamond engagement ring or wedding band that represents a lifelong commitment. Starting with the raw material and ending up with an original handmade treasure, with symbolic meaning to the owner, is what inspires me the most.
My passion is working with gold and precious gems, like coloured sapphires, opals, pearls and diamonds. I also enjoy creating unique silver pieces, from pendants and rings to bangles and lockets.
