Welcome to my world of handmade jewellery and painting.
Making jewellery and art has been a huge, HUGE part of my life for many years only second to my child, yes you are still important even though you are all grown up! My personal connection and love of making transforms ordinary objects into jewellery treasures. This connection is passed on to the wearer when they purchase my work. When you wear handmade jewellery, your part of the story that I as an artist am telling through my work. The story then changes to yours. There is a lot of care, and attention that goes into my making of your piece of jewellery. It a great circle of wonder. My work is inspired by my environment and I am lucky to live near a gorgeous beach and wander it often. Beach glass and stone are just two of thefound objects I use in my designs.
I love making jewellery that speaks to people. Take the childrens drawing pieces that I have been making over the last few years. It's just so wonderful and quite a challenge not to mention a responsibility to take someones childs or grandchilds drawing and transform it into a gorgeous piece of jewellery. Now that's satisfying and so special.
The other work I really love making is my memory jewellery. People often have treasures from family members or loved ones, or from their childs childhood. I make them into a special unduring wearable piece of jewellery. Often these end up in braclets as they seem to lend themselves well to the bits and pieces people bring in.
There are several sections in my shop. Iv'e never been good at just doing one thing. Please take your time browsing and contact me if you have any questions about any of my jewellery or painting.
You can feel good about your purchase knowing that you have a special piece of me as an artist forever in your jewellery/art collection. By buying my work you are supporting creativity and the handmade movement.
I have been painting for the last few years and just love that too. The genres that I enjoy are nudes, landscapes and abstract, then mixing them all in toegether at times, fantastic! There is a section where you can view my paintings.
