The main inspirations for my work are the aesthetics of form, structure and material composition. Earlier in my career I worked worked with traditional metals incorporating solid geometric compositions, but latterly became driven to find a material to work with that would have a more organic and textured quality.
My most recent collection investigate the properties of stainless steel mesh, a material that is rarely used in contemporary studio jewellery.
By exploiting the qualities of the mesh, pushing the limits of the material, light and elegant pieces have been created from a source that in its original form can be regarded as rigid and plain.
The construction is light and minimal, and the surface design has been inspired by fluid patterns that can be found within nature. The combination of fine gold and silver fixed within the beauty of the steel mesh has created juxtapositions that are unique within contemporary designs.
