Describe your work in 3 words?
Tactile, Delicate, Feminine

What inspires you/your work?
Patterns and compositions of shape and forms, light and shadow, and movement are all things that constantly inform my work as well as the actual process of making.

I find I constantly experiment as I make, with the arrangement of the different elements, with the creation of the shapes I’m using, with the methods of joining. And so as I complete one design another comes to life in my mind.

Lupita Nyong’o

If you weren’t a jewellery designer what do you think you would be?
I’ve recently discovered a bit of a love for gardening. I know next to nothing about it yet but I think I’d like to do that.

What tool can you not live without?
My hammer, which used to be my dads. I’ve used it constantly since setting up my business, and obviously it has that sentimental value too. Soppy face.

Which famous person or personality would you most love to see wearing your jewellery?
Someone like Lupita Nyong’o, who’s strong but feminine, classic and contemporary all at the same time.

What is your favourite pieces on lovedazzle?
There are so many things that I lust after for myself but Becky Crow‘s Wild Thing Stag and Wild Thing Wolf pins tug at my heart strings. They remind me of my nephew.
