It was always my intention to be a maker having been very much influenced by my mum who was one of the foremost cabinet makers in Scotland. However, working with wood was not something I enjoyed but I was particularly good at art, and I became increasingly fascinated by jewellery and working with metal.So began my formal education at the Glasgow School of Art where I gained an honours degree in Design and learnt the complex hand skills of making jewellery and silver smithing

Creating my own jewellery is a way of expressing my identity, who I am and what inspires me. The world I experience on a Galloway beach with its ripples in the sand or fields of sunflowers in the French countryside engage me and through contemplation of my eye and over time enter into my heart. In my heart they are infused with hopes, love and delight. The rolling land or rippled sand becomes the curve and sweep of a wedding band. The sun and sunflower fuse into a brooch. 

I love my work especially when I have created something beautiful that gives pleasure to the person that will wear it. Quality and individuality are at the core of what I do. The pieces are handmade entirely by me including making and setting all the precious gemstones so do get in touch if you have something in mind
