Most of my designs evolve from the initial discovery of an amazing bead, piece of glass or even a simple pebble found on the beach. Ideas can sometimes be instant or can take days or months but that's part of the fun. I often design whilst out walking, taking inspiration from my surroundings. Once at the bench though these ideas usually evolve and follow their natural path. I like textures and curves, both of which feature in my work. Whilst I work mainly in silver I do like to have accents of gold in my designs to add extra interest.
Sea glass features strongly in my work this year. Sourced from the northeast coast I have some beautiful blue, white , green and even yellow pieces.
My style is very organic and whilst I marvel at the intricacy and beauty of the Tiffany's and Boodles shop windows I'm a simple girl at heart.
This will be my third year as a member of Cambridge Open Studios. Again I will be exhibiting in The Garden Studio in Milton with fellow jeweller and Open Studio member Linda Bartlett. This year we are also joined by landscape photographer and Open Studio member Marnie Bird.
