Major project:

It all begins with touch.

I believe the physical ‘touch’ of jewellery has powerful potential to change the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us. My work investigates tactile potential, especially for soothing comfort: I aim for sense-full surfaces, nuzzling and strokeable textures, enveloping experience. I aim for jewellery that touches back.
