I have to be honest, I’m not a jeweller, I have no qualification in this field, other than trying to communicate adornment through a different way of making for the past 10 years.

Through the HS6 program I hope to create work which is simplistically sophisticated and which holds an elegant accuracy communicating the narrative which I have chosen to discuss! In my opinion, Iris Eichenberg‘s work holds all these qualities.

Having Iris as my mentor has made me want to keep on working, lose self-doubt, jump off that cliff and to start trusting my practice.
