At a time when our experiences are often presented as a fixed series of figures, my work centres on the more unpredictable and intangible qualities that make us human. By embracing chance and uncertainty as integral to the creation of material, I have both instigated and surrendered varying levels of control to create a body of work that focuses attention on process, authourship and relinquished aesthetic.

My practice as a maker, designer and researcher begins with the body, in its physical, personal and social spheres. By positioning myself within the broad and flexible medium of jewellery I seek to critically explore ideas both conceptually and materially
My current work embraces the concept of chance as a key component to the creation of material. In doing so I have openly questioned both my role as a maker, and the function of jewellery as a medium to represent and respond to the body; particularly in reaction to the increasingly reductive proliferation of personal data.
