'I design and handcraft all my sterling silver jewellery. The pieces are either one offs or batch produced in small numbers. I use pattern and texture, most of which is created by hand stamping. I use handmade or antique / salvaged hand stamps, which means that the prints are quite unique to my work. I also use a unique combination of materials such as vintage plastics and vintage glass to add colour which I source from as far afield as America, Israel and Czechoslovakia. I use Victorian boot buttons (used in pendants and bangles) found in a small shop on the Isles of Scilly. I use vintage, leather stamping tools which I found and use to stamp into the silver.'
