Timeless Jewellery that is Simple & Soulful
I create tactile, expressive jewellery pieces using traditional Goldsmithing techniques. Inspiration comes from the work of ancient Columbian and Etruscan goldsmiths as well as modern literature and the natural world. I bring out the natural lustre and warmth of gold by using antique tools and natural objects to apply subtle surface textures creating classic and timeless designs that are simple and soulful.
My range of wedding bands are designed to sit alongside and compliment many engagement rings. The sets work together but each ring can stand alone and be worn separately. I offer a bespoke service and have a range of unique stones in natural colours with loads of character. All styles are available in yellow, rose and white gold or a combination of colours and can be set with diamonds for added sparkle.
Sourcing ethically is an integral part of my process, I'm proud to be able to support projects that are working to improve environmental standards and working conditions for miners.
