My jewellery is designed and made in the studio in the Design Tower.
Each new design begins with a thought, often based around themes such as aspects of culture, the urban landscape or nature.
I begin the design process by abstracting the essence of a theme through a series of drawings. This is now evolved by further drawings to the required form of, for instance, a ring. This idea or concept, is often clarified by a 3D mock up in metal, wax or paper.
This completes the design journey for a range, or individual piece of jewellery.
When a piece of jewellery is to be reproduced for short batch production, a prototype of the design is made in metal and a rubber mould is taken from it.
