As a jewellery designer, my work is inspired by many visual items and experiences but mostly contemporary architectural elements. My pieces are simple with minimal lines and shapes so that the materials I use really stand out.
My design process differs each time, sometimes it starts with an idea in my mind and sometimes it stems from an inspiration, then I would sketch it whilst thinking of materials that would complement the style of the piece.
Following this, I research the materials needed and how to buy any if I don't already have them. Finally, I make the piece and wear it on me to really get the feel of it.
I also seek feedback from friends, family and even fashion enthusiasts on social media.
