I love to create wearable objects that are delicate, simple, useful, beautiful and easily reproducible. This philosophy combines with my inspirations, interests and industrial design background to shape jewellery made from two-dimensional bead-work and three-dimensional beading. My pieces, called Geoms, are lovingly crafted from humble materials, mainly silver and glass bugle beads woven together. To this medium, I sometimes add Swarovski crystals, glass marbles, leather thread and silver chains.

I love to work on large-scale wearable neck and chest pieces. These delicate and intricate hand made contemporary pieces are explorations of the geometric patterns embedded at the core of all living forms. Interwoven glass or silver beads with a nylon tread are the elements that are used to explore the interconnectedness between geometrical patterns, structures and shapes, as a way of exploring the omnipresent sacred geometric patterns and structures, and a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole. The influence of a rich visual vocabulary informed by a deep interest in the geometrical patterns of 13th century Seljuk and Iznik glazed ceramic mosaics is also evident in these intricate pieces.
