In May 2013 I moved my home & business to St Ives in Cornwall. This has been a long held dream to be by the sea & St Ives has such a thriving artist community, fabulous galleries, beaches & scenery – I feel very lucky to be living here…..
Twice a year during Cornwall Open Studios & the St Ives Festival I intend to open my studio space where visitors will be able to see me at work still using the jewellers’ bench my grandad made me over 20 years ago. I don’t need to use a huge amount of equipment; most pieces are created using hand tools such as the piercing saw, pliers, stamps & punches, hammers & my trusty blowtorch.
Generally I work on several projects during a typical week, making jewellery in small batches alongside more complex larger metalwork plus usually some greetings cards too. This keeps thing interesting!
