My journey so far ....


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 after a long gap to pursue my passion creating unique and sustainable jewellery collections in a variety of materials. I feel part of the slow fashion movement selling designer jewellery at Inclusive Trade, Jewel Street, SEEKD Fashion 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 design printing and casting in the Gold/Bridal Collection, laser etching on wood, exploring the boundaries of what we perceive as precious. ​
