During the past year I have designed a new collection of gold & silver jewellery for Ola Gorie, Orkney.
Invited to work in collaboration with both Ola Gorie & Ingrid Tait, this collection takes as its inspiration 5,000-year-old archeological findings unearthed from the Ness of Brodgar; an extraordinary excavation that lies central to ancient ceremonial sites on mainland Orkney, Scotland. http://www.nessofbrodgar.co.uk

Intricate rock carvings have inspired this range of pendant necklaces, earrings, brooch and a ring. Launched during the summer of 2016 this collection is now available to see and buy either online at:

and from: Ola Gorie Jewellery, 7-15 Broad Street, Kirkwall, Orkney.

HANDWERK & DESIGN auf der Internationalen Handwerkmesse

Press release

SCHMUCK 2017: Humorous, ironical, serious and colourful

Distinctive, one of a kind items, wearable works of art, clear statements: the special SCHMUCK* exhibition from 8th to 14th March 2017 at the Internationale Handwerksmesse, unites outstanding works from the author’s jewellery sector. It is considered to be one of the most significant exhibitions of contemporary jewellery design and is a meeting point for collectors, gallerists, museum curators and jewellery artists from around the world. As more and more parallel events have gathered around SCHMUCK in the last couple of years, GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH, the fair organiser, will issue a SCHMUCK city map for the first time, with all important events and dates.

Munich, December 2016 – SCHMUCK is an exhibition
 with international steel power. More than 700 goldsmiths
 and jewellery designers from all continents have applied to 
be part of the renowned special exhibition at the
 Internationale Handwerksmesse in Munich. “The amount
 of applications alone shows how esteemed this special
 exhibition on contemporary jewellery is and how much 
significance is ascribed to it globally,” says Wolfgang 
Lösche from the Chamber of Crafts for Munich and Upper
 Bavaria, manager of the special exhibition SCHMUCK. Since its premiere in 1959, it is considered to be style-defining and the gateway for new trends in the author’s jewellery sector. It is an important platform for participants to make a name for themselves and establish contacts in the international goldsmith’s sector. This year’s highlight is the presentation of the Herbert- Hofmann awards to three outstanding jewellery designers, this time on Saturday, 11th March 2017, at 5.00 pm on the stage in hall B1, which is always highly anticipated by numerous international guests.
