I work at home in the stunning mountains of Snowdonia where I live with my partner and 2 cats.
I left school in 2000 and did a GNVQ in Art and Design, where my final year project was jewellery mixed media, this included my first jewellery experience of using a forge and manipulating silver. I was accepted onto a Jewellery and Silversmithing degree at the University of Central Lancashire but my severe anxiety attacks prevented me from going.
Since then I have been working at home, building up my jewellery portfolio and doing various short courses in Silversmithing to help refine my skills and techniques . In 2007 I did a Certificate of Higher Education in Graphic Art and Liverpool John Moores University in the hope of extending my artistic portfolio, but craft (especially jewellery) seemed to take president and I continued to make pieces for friends and family and attend the odd craft fair.
In 2016 I did a small silversmithing course with Angela Evans (a very talented local Jewellery maker who owns Siop Iard in Caernarfon), and it was her expert tutor-age which made me believe I was capable of making and selling silver jewellery pieces!
Since then I have attended more craft fairs with my silver handmade jewellery, and have set up an Etsy shop. Christmas 2018 saw me set up my first display in a local art gallery shop and list some of my work on Etsy! The response has been so positive that I feel much more confident in my craft, and when I’m working and making beautiful pieces it feels like this is me!
