About me

“There are many in the jewellery trade who think luxury and ethics don’t go together.  It doesn’t have to be that way,  it’s entirely possible to make ethical luxury jewellery  – I do it every single day”.

I’m an artist as well as a goldsmith and because of that my jewellery has added layers of depth and meaning.  I think and care deeply about my work, I want it to be the best it can be, it is meticulously crafted and each element of a design is carefully considered.

My designs are intuitive and intentional, my inspiration comes from nature itself – the great outdoors.  I live in the wilds of Dumfries and Galloway, I love the big skies, the open spaces and the freedom.  The smell of the sea, or the scent of pine, birds wheeling overhead.  The earthy smell you get after it rains, endless blue skies on a sunny day or the valley and hills muffled and blanketed by snow.

I work really closely with my customers, fostering personal connections and listening when you talk about what really matters.  Especially important if we’re working together on a bespoke piece of “story” jewellery.

My business ethics are the same as my personal ones.   My work is a force for good, not harm and I work with ethical suppliers I know and trust.
