I explore an extensive range of influences for my work but I'm mostly drawn to natural motifs and organic forms that are ethically found or photographed here in beautiful South Africa. As most of my family and friends know, I love insects and I'm mesmerized by their natural perfection which I recreate in my work. I use a variety of material and techniques to explore and create new collections.
Currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa, I received my B-tech in Jewellery Design and Manufacturing and a Masters degree in Fine Arts. I am an award-winning jewellery designer, being a finalist in Plat Africa 2014 and Over-all winner of PPC Imaginarium 2015/16 which has launched my career in a new direction.
I love to create. I'm constantly designing and creating fine art jewellery pieces for new collections. I hope to share this passion and I found the best way to do so is to create everyday wearable jewellery pieces for my online business or to bring to life others unique commissioned creations. I love to add meaning to each creation or to incorporate your own meaning into your jewellery piece.
