I am a second-generation enameller, having worked alongside my father who had been in the trade since 1926 up until his retirement in 1983.

I was brought up watching him work and spending time with him in the workshop from as young as eight or nine, it was almost a natural progression that I would follow in his footsteps.

My training followed the traditional apprentice path; serving under masters as they themselves had done, passing down the skills that had been passed down for generations.

I accept jewellery commissions in: champlevé, plique á jour, gold, silver, precious stones
