My work includes enamelled brooches, pendants and earrings. I especially enjoy making earrings – both for pierced ears and, with clips, for unpierced ears. The clips I use are the comfortable ‘omega’ fittings. Transparent enamels are applied to an engraved and textured silver base in the champleve technique. I tend to use light colours, which for earrings can bring a reflective quality similar to pearls.
I trained at the Sir John Cass Department of Art and have participated in a number of exhibitions, most of them selling exhibitions:
In 1998 at Studio Fusion in London
In 2002, 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011 at the Oxfordshire Museum Gallery in Woodstock
In 2012 at the Theatre Royal in York
In 2013 at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham
In 2014 at the Gallery of 78 Derngate in Northampton.
