My background consists of a combination of hand crafted and digital design and while I thrive on utilising a wide range of materials and new techniques, I have always used jewellery as my main medium. I consider contemporary jewellery to not be defined by the use of a single material or technique. The most important quality of a piece of jewellery is the story it tells and how it can be seen as an expression of the wearer.
During my MA, I began to focus on using 3D printing as my primary method for crafting. This way I could continue using the variety of materials I enjoy working with, while creating more complex designs.
Currently I am working as a visualiser using 'VRay'; to render architectural scenes. While in my personal work I continue to design jewellery. In contrast to the more conceptual work from university, I am now aiming for more practical pieces, that can be worn on a daily basis.
With each new piece of my work, I try to include details and flourishes that encourage the wearer to look closer. I want them to not simply wear my designs, but get to know the individual personality of each piece.
