I graduated from the London Metropolitan University (Sir John Cass Faculty of Art) – Design Jewellery and Silversmithing. 

Based in Kent I set up the Ark Jewellery in 2019. I am part of a sustainable movement selling designer jewellery at SEEKD Fashion, Solo Craft Fair, JewelStreet, and the prestigious Top Drawer trade exhibition.

I use recycled or fair-trade materials with sustainable histories to produce limited edition artisan jewellery that I hope will be passed down generations.

I love using new technologies such as 3D printing and casting, laser etching on wood, exploring the boundaries of what we perceive as precious. ​
