Throughout my four years at Duncan of Jordanstone Collage of Art and Design in Dundee, Investigating fashion and textiles has always been an integral part of my research and development process. I enjoy exploring the texture and free movement of textiles, and applying this element to the hard-edged nature of metal. In my final year of jewellery and metalwork, I found that Japanese textiles in particular played an important role inspiring my jewellery design. Most importantly this research has led me on to develop my own textile, which I use alongside precious metals when designing and creating my jewellery.
