Woodland Fine Silver Earrings, Textured Hoops with Silver Leaves and Buds

Hello! So today I thought I’d take a minute to write a little post about the inspiration behind my designs. 

There are many things that inspire me, but first and foremost it is mostly the forms, patterns and textures found in nature. You know that moment when you are scrolling through Pinterest and you come upon a macro image of lichen, a skeleton leaf or even fungi? Yep! And you wow – aren’t these natural forms little works of art.

My Journey….

My Journey to my dream, my passion…….

I’m creative by nature, in everything I do, I have an idea, a passion, a goal to achieve. I am an organised soul, my thinking and methods are creative. Although I have worked in the corporate field for many years I would often dream about doing something different, something unique. I’ve had life long passion for jewellery, when I can’t find something to match I will make it. Having had a fantastic opportunity to travel and live on three continents, and taking a step back from the daily 9-5 corporate world routine, It gave me a chance to realise my dream and pursue my passion for jewellery making.

Following a short course in jewellery making, I had the tools to start my journey. I’m in my element when I wear my creative hat, time stands still and I can very easily lose track of time doing what I love most – making jewellery, beautiful, unique, elegant jewellery. I make my jewellery with a true passion for others to treasure when worn.

I’m on my adventure, my journey….

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and hope you will follow my journey.
