Nature inspired artisan jewellery lovingly handmade in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
I love to use organic textures, negative spaces and contrasting colour from patinas and semi-precious stones.

I first discovered my passion for jewellery design after completing three-years of short courses at Gray’s School of Art. Since then I have developed my practice for over a decade.



Reducing my impact on the environment is very important to me. In my home life and in business I endeavour to reduce my footprint on the planet through conscious use of materials and reducing waste.

I have consciously reduced waste from my production by reusing or refining all scrap materials and by eliminating plastic from my packaging. Wherever possible I choose non-toxic chemicals in my process and use recycled precious metals and ethically sourced stones.

Small businesses like mine have the advantage of being able to manage more aspects of their production and supply sources; my jewellery is made by hand, slowly and consciously.
