Growing up in the historic town of York, England, the past fascinated me from a young age. Through my studies and work as a Social Historian I was granted an insight into the pivotal roles art and fashion played in almost every culture and era. However it was in studying the 19th Century Arts and Crafts, and Aesthetic Movements that I found my own calling to be creative.
In 2015 I learned to crochet. I quickly fell in love with the structural beauty and unique expression the art form afforded. My work marries the 19th century crochet lace tradition with the geometrical complexity of the natural world. Crocheting Precious Metals produces designs that are elegant yet strong; a modern imagining of a heritage craft.
All materials used in my designs are 100% reclaimed, each design is crafted using antique hand tools, and my studio is working towards being zero waste.
Leading a creative life that has a positive environmental impact is so important to me. Making jewelry that is individual, ethical, and sustainable is my dream. I feel fortunate to be able to live it and share this passion every day.
