Handmade jewellery inspired by ancient artefacts
From a young age I can remember being fascinated by museum exhibits of discovered aftefacts. Often broken into pieces, with fragments missing, heavily corroded and distressed. The pieces had been painstakingly re assembled in the displays like an ancient jigsaw puzzle.
There was something about these artefacts that really spoke to me like nothing before. I liked the sense of fragility and the fact that you don't see the full picture.
Taking inspiration from these artefacts I have combined numerous styles and historical periods to produce my own style which I like to think gives a different perspective to the jewellery I produce and in turn creates something a little different to the norm.
I'm constantly trying out new ideas so if you'd like to see what's new then follow my facebook page with the
