I'm an award-winning jewellery designer, writer and teacher based in London, England. I first began making jewellery in 2001, having already spent many years painting as well as exploring different aspects of fibre and textile arts. Whilst I continue some of these interests, beading, wirework and chain maille are my main love and I try to use them in conjunction with my other interests.
I am fortunate to get to travel the UK, and the World, teaching and sharing my work.
In addition to many projects and articles published worldwide, I am the author of two books on beading and jewellery making as well as being the co-author on another three. I was also the editor of Bead magazine for four years.
