Profile

I am a contemporary jeweller based in the beautiful city of Durban, 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.

My  fascination for old and antiquated items is often an influence on my design aesthetic. I am a strong believer in the beauty of something being held not so much in its outward appearance or material value, but in the story it holds. The beauty of something lying in the sentiment attached to it is a value that fascinates me, and is therefore a strong influence in my designing.

The techniques I use are chosen to create an old-world, worn look, as if the jewellery has been passed down from another generation. 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.

…This blog is a record of my journey as an artist, and a way to share the experience and inspiration with others*
