Biography / Company Profile: 

I design and make silver and gold jewellery near Cambridge.

Much of my work is custom made, one-offs for special occasions. I use traditional techniques, fretsawing, fabrication, filigree wire work. I also work with fine silver clay to make duplicates. Often adding colour with gemstones, enamel and resin. I'm attracted to intricate details and fluid patterns; this comes through in most of my designs. My recent work has been inspired by aerial photos.

The recurring theme has been rivers going through rocky valleys - I layer smoothly curving wires over textured silver then embellish with gemstones and gold granulation.

My grandmother Casty Cobb was a Silversmith, she taught me and many others in Cambridge until she was in her 90's, encouraging and inspiring until a few weeks before she died.
