The basis of my collection is photographs taken from walks along the East Coast of Scotland; I was particularly inspired by the compositions created by materials being washed up there, which have a tactile, spontaneous quality.

I further abstracted these images by drawing in a very free-manner. Focusing on tone and texture with mark-making, my jewellery is developed from these, exploiting the naturally haphazard qualities of the compositions in my initial source material.

A selection of brooches, necklaces and individual earrings, my jewellery has a muted colour palette, instead focusing on subtle differences in the surfaces, intended to appear as drawings on the body.
