This Spring I will be showing at : Chiltern Hills Art Fair, Chesham, on Sat 16th March, 11am-4pm. Sally Evans Artist & Maker Fairs at Liston Hall in Marlow on 13th April, 10am-4pm, & Thame Town Hall on 18th May 10am-4pm.
I will also have work on show at The Little Bird Gallery in Wendover, during March, as part of the Sally Evans show.
I worked in the Display & Visual Merchandising Industry for many years, mostly in Central London Department stores, including Liberty. This has lead to a wide range of skills and influences, as Retail doesn't stand still! All the while I was quietly learning the Jewellery trade in the background, for personal enjoyment. I first designed and sold Bridal Tiaras, through a high end Bridal designer, but soon fell in love with designing more eclectic yet classic ranges of jewellery that can be worn everyday, but look unique and outstanding on the wearer.
Commissions are always wonderful, as there is a joy in working with the client, finding the story behind the piece, often leading me down a new rabbit hole of things to learn, which is a lifelong road.....
