About

What I Do

Since Graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 2013 with a degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery I have organically developed a portfolio career spanning Jewellery and Object design and making, teaching, craft development and curatorial practice.

Ethical Art Objects and Jewellery

I use Fair Trade recycled metals along with found rocks I collect throughout the UK.

Interested in the way people interact with objects, my designs are often transformable or component based, allowing the work to be worn and exhibited with multiple possibilities.

Keep up to date with my latest work, inspiration, class information and commissions on Facebook and Instagram.

Projects 

O-PiN. established in 2013 is a project I have developed and directed with Soizig Carey. We are interested in sharing jewellery and objects in engaging and unconventional ways. Through curating, exhibiting and delivering educational workshops, we share making and creative processes to inspire and facilitate learning for all ages and groups. We particularly encourage accessibility in the arts and the use of material exploration with an emphasis on renewable sources.
