I approach jewellery design as the collection and arrangement of stories, ideas and forms combined with a technical, material practice.
As an emerging contemporary jeweller my work is guided by investigation of historical gold and silversmithing techniques such as granulation, repousse and plique-a-jour enamel. I am captivated by the transformation of metal from sheet to form and the different properties and demands of the materials I work with. Experimentation with tradition and technique into form invariably reveals a story, waiting to be told by the object created.
I completed my studies in jewellery at NMIT in 2013. I previously also studied jewellery design at the Tasmanian Polytechnic and studied art history and curatorship at the University of Sydney and the University of Tasmania.
