ABOUT THE MAKER

I create contemporary jewellery and glass gifts from my ‘Box room’ here in Derbyshire. My designs are inspired by architecture and geometry and my work is available to buy here or at galleries locally.

BUY HANDMADE

I make all of the jewellery products myself and specialise in combining silver & gold to create beautiful colour & texture contrasts. My jewellery is commonly minimalist in appearance and many pieces include small semi-precious gemstones. More recently I have started to incorporate fused glass into my jewellery designs and have also further branched out into larger fused glass products.

 

Artisan & Producers Markets 

I am pleased to announce that I am showcasing my work at a number of events in Derbyshire throughout 2019 including Dronfield Hall Barn, Holmesfield local market and Haddon Hall summer & Christmas markets. Products will include light catchers, candle stands, wall art and jewellery. Alongside the glass work there will also be a selection of sterling silver jewellery.

Haddon Hall Christmas Market

I am thrilled to be attending this event having visited the Spring market there earlier this year and had a stall myself at the Summer market. What a treat to find room after room full of fresh produce such as marshmallow, bread and cake alongside wooden gifts, mosaic and unusual lighting. The Christmas market will be held inside the stunning Tudor house in a variety of rooms from tiny stone kitchen areas to grand long halls – it’s certainly not to be missed.

Christmas Market 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th & 17th November
