Artist Statement and Care Instructions

Artist Statement

I am a contemporary jeweller, using silver & hand stitched silk threads to add layers of colour & texture to my work. I work with found objects that I collect from mudlarking along the River Thames. I particularly like those everyday objects, such as dress pins & copper nails, that have been made by the hands of past generations centuries ago in the days before mechanisation. They have had a previous life & use, & by working on them with my hands to make them wearable I am adding a new chapter in their history.

Care Instructions

To clean a piece of my jewellery, polish the silver elements with a polishing cloth then wash gently in a hand washing solution, rinse, and leave to dry naturally.

I also offer a cleaning service, as well as undertaking any alterations or repairs as required, please contact me for details.
