I'm a jeweller, from a craft background, with many years luxury design experience. All these aspects I like to channel into jewellery and objects which appeal to people from different walks of life.
Born in England, from the age of nine I grew up in Donegal, Ireland and went on to do a degree in metals at NCAD in Dublin, graduating in 2005. After this I took part in a luxury design course in Milan, which led to freelance design work for Van Cleef & Arpels. Following a stint as a watch designer at Links of London, I then took a place on the GSM&J course at the Royal College of Art.
I graduated from the college this year (2010) with a collection based around interaction with nature, as experienced in childhood. For this collection I won the Best Work in Jewellery prize at the Theo Fennell Awards and have been shortlisted for the Sustain 2010 Awards.
