About

susan_working.jpg

I create jewellery inspired by the beauty in our natural surroundings. From delicate petal structures to bold sea coloured opals. I like to work with precious metals through an intuitive and playful process to create unique and personal jewellery for its wearer. I have a fascination with vivid sea colours and wild botanicals, which I like to incorporate into my design process. 

I am currently based at the Summerhall studios in Edinburgh, working on jewellery collections and teaching at the Summerhall School of Jewellery.  If you would like to learn more about my practice and enquire about a commission please get in touch to arrange a studio visit.
