My work explores the many layers of meaning associated with common everyday objects, particularly those within the subject of jewellery. I challenge conventional ideas through the playful juxtaposition of recognizable objects and symbols. Common clichés such as the heart and the diamond solitaire ring inspire themes of love, commitment, status, value, worth, power and wealth. I use a wide range of materials and processes in my jewellery work, combining the most current industrial and digital techniques with more traditional methods of making. I embrace innovative technologies and see their vast potential to express new ideas in creative ways.
