2. Where do you do most of your work?
Most of my work takes place in the studio which is based in the popular Hatton Gardens but I have design ideas all the time and often carry a pad and pencil with me so I can sketch my thoughts on the move.
3. What’s a typical day look like for you?
A typical day for me has to start with a cup of coffee, after which I reply to any emails I have received and call back clients. I meet with clients early to discuss their needs for the jewellery they need to be produced and like to do this before lunch so I can concentrate on the process of making in the afternoon. Once in the studio I put my head down and really focus on the piece I am working on, the quality and finish on the jewellery I make is really important to me, so it has to be right.
4. What inspired you today?
Everyday brings new inspirations and the more I work within this creative industry, the more my passion grows to produce high quality pieces and the belief I can go further with my dreams.
5. Why did you create a jewellery range?
I created a jewellery range as I wanted to put my own mark on the jewellery I make, I have made ranges that are special and significant to my own experiences and want the wearer to have their own special memories with the pieces. Creating my own ranges has allowed me to finite my skills as a jewellery designer and allowed me to express my own style within the handmade jewellery I produce. Seeing a piece that started out as an idea in my head to the finished ring on someone’s finger, is a success in itself to me.
6. What’s your biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge I face at the moment is being recognised in an industry that is constantly evolving, you have to keep up with trends in fashion and technology but must always remain true to your individual style, this is part of my working ethos.
