When making jewellery I rarely sketch an idea, I prefer to let the design lead me until the piece comes alive on my bench. I believe that you should not be restricted by the first idea that comes to mind, it should be let to grow as the making process does, simultaneously.  

 

 

I graduated from Ulster University Belfast School of Art, in 2016 with a BA Hons in Contemporary Applied Arts, specialising in Jewellery & Silversmithing. Whilst studying in Belfast I was commissioned to create & present a piece of my jewellery to HRH Princess Royal. And shortly after went on to win the Craft in Business Award 2016 presented by Craft NI & Invest NI.
