Personal Statement
          I am a professional Art Jeweller, specialising in silversmithing and small scale hot glass techniques to create pieces
which are often bold and flamboyant. In 2007 I gained a First Class Bachelor of Design Degree with Honours, in Three
Dimensional Design from Manchester Metropolitan University. This included a one year Creative Business Development
course which supported my transition from education into self employment. All my pieces are created in a purpose built
studio on my home premises in Manchester. My current Jewelley range combines handblown glass Bubbles with precious
metal lustres and sterling silver multilink chains.
