Vibrant floral patterns with a 60s vibe
A classic oval pendant suspended on a fine silver plated chain. The retro floral design with its navy blue background sits flush within the millgrain edged silver plated setting. Due to the technique I use, please note that every piece is completely unique therefore the pattern will differ from one pair to another (see photos for examples).
Extremelly light and comfortable to wear. Retro yet contemporary.

I work from my studio in Northampton where I create colourful and quirky jewellery in polymer clay and sterling silver. I am self taught. Over the years I have developed a unique style and refined the various techniques required to create my jewellery. My products are stocked in stores and galleries throughout the UK and sold worldwide. Every piece is unique either as part of a collection or limited edition.
Design and inspiration
My inspiration is varied. For instance, my distinctive BRETON Collection is inspired by the memories of my childhood holidays spent in Brittany. My love of classic design from various eras is also a strong influence in my work. Fascinated by the Mid-Century and Art Deco styles in particular, some elements of these periods are often echoed in my work. Above all, I create pieces where colour, pattern and texture are centre stage.
Hand made using modern materials
Two of my favourite steps in the process of creating jewellery are the sketching of a new design and mixing the clay to obtain the exact shade I am after. Polymer clay as a medium allows me to blend striking colours in contrast to the subtle appearance of sterling silver. Every piece of jewellery is made with a focus on quality and attention to detail.
