My journey into silversmithing started 20 years ago when I took a series of night classes. I learnt how to make a few basic pieces and I was hooked! Since then, I followed a corporate career. 2024 is the start of a new adventure, turning my hobby into a business. My inspiration comes from the picturesque North Yorkshire landscape and nature. I mainly work in fine silver metal clay, applying colour to my pieces using 24ct gold accents, enamels and gemstones. Metal clay is a very versatile material enabling me to create very intricate pieces.
