'I am a Stokesley based jewellery maker and regularly exhibit in several galleries in North Yorkshire. I'm inspired by natural materials and found objects my work incorporates glass, semi-precious stones, pearls, wood, shells, ceramic and vintage beads, buttons and buckles to create single
pieces or sets of unique character.
I use beads from around the world as well as my own hand made felt pieces to express variety of colour, shape and texture. Inspiration can come from hours of experimentation with bead combinations or from simply going for a walk, as the natural materials I use are very much expressions of nature, as well as mood. My work evolves during the year in response to natural colours in the changing seasons.'
