Having always been fascinated by the whole process of taking ore from the ground, refining it to make metal and then using that metal to make tools and jewellery, I took some silver and decided to have a go on the kitchen table. My work began with simple earrings and plain rings, learning from my mistakes along the way. I am now an accomplished jewellery designer and maker. With my partner Cerys, also an artist, we have gone from strength to strength turning our creative passion into a small successful business within the heart of Folkestone’s Creative Quarter. We opened our shop on the Old High Street in November 2018 where we promote other local creatives and artisans. It has been an amazing journey so far and gets better with every new opportunity.
