I have always had a keen interest in history, and things from the past which has lead to a delight in antique objects. I take a lot of my inspiration from forms and patterns in antique furniture, frames, jewellery and prints.
I am currently doing my B-Tech in Jewellery Design and Manufacture. All my jewellery is designed and handmade by me. I love to experiment with different processes of manufacture and different materials. Often my fingers do my thinking, and my design process is progressive as I play around with metals and textures.
I live in the lovely city of Durban in South Africa and I am very often inspired by the life around me. I draw a lot of inspiration from nature, pattern, antiques, textures, fashion, people, words and poetry.
