About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Jewellery Designer & Maker
Location Blairgowrie, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a jewellery designer & maker from Perthshire in Scotland. I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2008 with a first class honours degree in Jewellery and Metalwork Design (BDes). I also spent the following year at the college as Designer in Residence, helping a 3rd year class of students - and I loved it! The same year I did my residency I did my Masters in Design (MDes) based on jewellery design, colour therapy & dyslexia. I base a lot of my jewellery on pieces of poetry or Scottish architecture, however I feel my style is still emerging. But jewellery makes me happy. So that's good.

What would you wear for camouflage if you were hiding in a gingerbread house?

A lacy dress and fake tan. I'd blend in as a bit of decorative icing.
