Contemporary jeweller working with organic forms and recycled materials.
I make my jewellery by rewilding silver – letting recycled silver flow and working with the chance natural forms so that pieces look more as if they were grown than made. Land art and nature poetry are important inspirations and I connect each piece of jewellery to lines of poetry that tell a little of its spirit. I am also committed to sustainability, using only certified recycled silver and vintage stones, non-toxic chemicals and renewable electricity in the production processes, and recycled and recyclable packaging. I founded my jewellery brand, Queen’s Wood Studio, in London in 2014, in my living room studio overlooking Queen’s Wood. For the last five years I have been in Brno in the Czech Republic developing my jewellery art, inspired by Czech folk traditions and techniques, amongst some magical designers and artists. Covid gave my partner and I the break from the usual run of things to make the decision to relocate to Wattisfield in Suffolk – to be closer to family and for the chance to build the sustainable home and future we’ve been seeking for a while.
