Learn solder inlay, how to make and use jigs, make simple findings, design with sheet metal and how to patinate copper and silver. Complete a series of experiments and finished jewellery or small metal objects.

Making jewellery fulfils a need I have to create objects that hold special meanings. These objects can be worn and can potentially provoke in the wearer and viewer a need for a response or interaction of some kind. A dialogue is opened up – jewellery then acts as a portable tool for the communication of ideas.
My work references my passion for plants as subject. I’m interested in notions of place, belonging and the life cycle and I use plants as metaphors to represent these ideas.
