Tell us about your jewellery brand
I create conceptual, fine and demi-fine jewellery. My jewellery is minimal yet bold in styling, invoking desire and purpose in the wearer. Strikingly bold and innovative design, our collections are worn by women who are comfortable wearing art, women that choose to stand out from the crowd, and women who celebrate their own individuality and cherish self-expression.
When did you start your brand?
Having always been creative in the family from a young age, I knew I had a deep desire to be a designer, I had studied art & design, interior design, graphic design and furniture design in school and university for many years, but I hadn’t yet found that ‘thing’ that would light me up from the inside and make me want to share it with the world. In 2020 I found that thing, It all began with a ring and became a thing. Self-taught and inspired by those daring greatly I sculpt, and shape jewellery that expresses confidence and strength, so you can feel empowered as you go about your day.
Do you have a favourite from your collection?
Ellie the elephant is one of our favourite designs. It was created for a local art competition, at the Hodgson Loom Gallery here on the Isle of Man. The subject was "FLY" and I just could not resist creating something with a little whimsy and drama for the occasion. In a dream, an elephant flying is a sign that you need to gain courage and face your fears. Don't let your negative thoughts hinder you from reaching your own true potential.
What has been your source of inspiration for your brand?
I take inspiration from the world around me. I'm fascinated by connection and movement, seeing how things can work together in unison or independently. These details challenge me to think outside expected parameters and develop new and exciting ways to fuse details with conceptual ideas and create new designs.
Do you currently have something in the works?
I am pleased to tell you that I am launching a new collection at this very event, all very hush hush at the moment and you’ll have to wait and see. Aside from the new collection launch there are a few other projects that I am working on and super excited about and can’t wait to share them with you when the time is right. As a designer from the Isle of Man, this is my 1st UK showcase where so many talented artists and designers began their careers.
