Jewellery & Metalwork

Working in my studio

I make silver, copper and enamel jewellery and gifts, working from my new studio in a converted shipping container at The Bone Yard, in Cardiff (Llandaf Road Industrial Estate, Rear of 35A Romilly crescent, CF11 9NL).

Until September 2017, I was based at Flameworks Creative Arts Facility in Plymouth, Devon where I also ran enamelling workshops, as well as demonstrating copper smithing at Morwellham Quay and Copper Mine, in the Tamar Valley.

Before I made jewellery, I was part of a digital arts collective, helping create interactive video installations and supporting digital arts events in the north of England.
