Currently a student at Manchester metropolitan university studying Three dimensional Design.
Creating jewellery from foraged materials, I seek out the pockets of wilderness in the UK collecting materials, and making on site. Combining materials from contrasting locations to add curiosity and intrigue to the work. Some of the works are made almost completely on site, others are made in the workshop inspired by the tests made while out. I try to use foraged materials wherever possible creating my own glue from pine sap, and using binding materials, such as fishing wire and shipping rope. My work highlights the beauty of the natural and wild and I strive to have no or as little impact upon the location and wildlife as possible.
