I’m a designer and maker of ethical fine jewellery and former owner of Cut the Mustard Gallery in Langholm, South West Scotland.
I work exclusively in 100% recycled or Fairmined, silver, gold, palladium and platinum. My coloured gemstones are natural and responsibly sourced. Diamonds are one of the following: natural and traceable, natural and recycled, or laboratory created. My jewellery is vegetarian and vegan friendly, ethical (no child labour, no human rights violations, fair wages, environmentally aware) and responsibly sourced. Click here to find out more. I aim to do business differently, to be approachable, honest and transparent and to cause as little harm as possible to humans, animals or the planet. I work hard to keep up with the latest developments in ethical and responsible sourcing. When you work with me, I aim to offer the most up to date advice, enabling you to make informed decisions that align with your own personal ethics.
I make my jewellery in my Langholm workshop, preferring to make by hand, using traditional tools and techniques and small batch production. My work is sold via galleries and exhibitions throughout the UK and is hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office, in addition, all Fairmined pieces will also have the Fairmined mark.
I’m a member of Spring Fling, a recipient of three Craft Maker Awards and a Regional Arts Fund Award.
