Henley-on-thames, Oxfordshire

A mother of 3, architect and designer maker. I have never been able to sit still and always need to create new things. I have tried my hand at making leather handbags, Ipad sleeves, crochet soft toys, concrete and clay jewellery, glassware and ceramics and will surely be adding to this list soon....

My current range is made from concrete, clay and hand woven seed beads. My concrete collection is influenced by my architectural background and my fascination with concrete. It is such a versatile robust material. The clay collection reflects my love of colour and my bead collection is inspired by my African heritage. Each and every item is hand formed/cast and polished or woven and then transformed into jewellery pieces. No two items are exactly alike and this forms part of their beauty.

I find my inspiration from my surroundings - mainly nature and the built form. I choose to use vibrant colours that represent the beauty of nature and the seasons of the year.
