I have had a keen interest in beading,  making jewellery and and textile design for over 20 Years. My inspiration comes from anything and everything! Most recently I have been creating beadwoven designs which were inspired by places or incidents from my past.  I love nothing more than to challenge myself to learn more and experiment with materials and techniques.

I made all of the jewellery items, tiaras, bridal accessories favours, and decorations for my own wedding in 2008. Since then I have gone on to make many more creations with wire and beads!

I was lucky enough to be successful in reaching the wirework finals of Jewellery Maker of the Year 2010 for my gunmetal swarovski and pearl headdress 'Renee' and also 'British Bead Awards 2010 Finalist' for my wirework 'Evie's Miracle' crystal necklace. In 2011 my Swarovski bracelet "Prinknash Splendour" came 3rd in the British Bead Awards Crystals Category and my necklace 'Sunset in Crescent Gardens' also won second place in the seed bead stitching category of Jewellery Maker of the Year 2012. More recently I have been lucky to have a project featured in Australian 'Digital Beading Magazine' with a pyramid inspired bangle called 'Menkaure's Pyramids' and I have also won 1st place with 'Chameleon Causeway' in the crystals category of the 2013 British Bead Awards. I have recently discovered that my 'Listello Tiles' design has not only been featured as a project in 'Beadwork Magazine' issues dec/jan 2014, but has made it onto the front page! Wow, I was blown away by that!

I have had many of my projects published in British Beading Magazines, and teach regular beading/jewellery workshops and one to one beading lessons. Please contact me if you would like me to deliver a workshop or have a one-to-one lesson.
