"The underlying link between all of my pieces is the influence of my environment. Many of them have an organic origin, adapted to be workshoppractical and wearable as a piece of jewellery.
In some instances I have focussed on the texture of natural objects and in others I have concentrated on the pattern or the shape. Shells, leaves, flowers and pebbles have been particularly influential, as well as landscapes, buildings and other man-made objects. Even the feelings aroused by an object, place or an event have a part to play in my designs."
