My jewellery is made using bead and wire-wrapping techniques, which I learned at The London School of Jewellery in Hatton Garden, City Lit and Morley College. Some of the pieces are based on French beaded flower techniques.

I particularly like to include seed beads and semi-precious stones as centrepieces. I am a fan of Butler and Wilson's jewellery, and this has influenced my own designs; some of it is serious bling!

I previously sold my jewellery at craft fairs and Art trails in London, and since moving to BoA 18 months ago have been pleased to become a part of the large community of local artists and craftspeople working here.
