Previous qualifications and training:
I studied Fine Art in Leeds. I also have a few random certificates for shorter courses that I am very proud of including Garden Design and Art Therapy and of course my London Jewellery School Higher Diploma Certificate from 2015.
How did you get involved in making jewellery?:
I had my first flourishing jewellery business when I was 10 and that started with a bead catalogue-I still have some of these beads now and have always messed around with polymer clay-passing some of my pieces off as art from time to time. My first metal working class was in 2014 at City Lit and I was so hoping to love it, and I soon discovered I did. I carried on in this class for a year before doing an intensive diploma at London Jewellery School. I have taken various courses since. I like what jewellery is about, not just adornment, but a little piece of entertainment, art or memory that you can carry around with you. It feels like it can be for anybody.
My favourite jeweller is:
Picking a favourites is tricky because I am greedy and it changes but I definitely consistently admire the jewels of Metalurj(aka Jill Herlands) and Nikki Couppee, but the blog is a fairly good indicator of the ever-growing list of jewellers that I find inspirational.
