Artist's Statement

After completing my BA(Hons) in Jewellery and Silversmithing in 2013 at Edinburgh College of Art, I decided to continue to develop my work on the MA Jewellery course. Throughout this year I have been working on refining my jewellery and creating a wearable collection using the combination of precious metals and plastics.

My inspiration comes primarily from drawing. I draw from nature and aim to replicate the patterns I see in my jewellery. The freedom that paint, pen and ink provide me with in my drawing and design work is something that I wish to reproduce in a 3D form. Repetitive pattern and contrasting colours are common in my drawings and essential in my work.

The use of different plastics allows me to achieve various surface patterns in my jewellery. By using several techniques I am able to replicate my drawings onto the surface of the material, using precious metals to set the plastic elements into a piece of jewellery and also as an embellishment,
