When you’re clinging to the ridge of a mountain, ready to throw yourself down THAT untouched area of off piste. When you’re using your last vestige of energy after trekking hours to get to the highest peak, just to see THAT sunrise. When you’re alone, or with your closest friends by your side, these feelings, experiences and memories could not be possible without one special thing: The mountains.
The powerful, untamed and epic nature of their natural form is something that simply cannot be captured, but this is what I aim to reflect in my jewellery. I create each piece through sculpting lines and shapes captured by memories and personal photographs of moments such as these. The wild cliff faces, crevasses and sheer peaks are the inspiration behind the tactile textures and deeply scored surfaces of each piece.
However, it’s not just the aesthetic of the scenery I use for inspiration. Whether it was forcing my burning legs to the very top of a glacial peak or standing with friends on a snow covered mountain with blue skies and the sun on my back, it is these personal moments I wish to recreate in my jewellery also. This is why when you select a piece and hold it in your hands, I want it to give you that spark as you recall a memory or achievement you have. To treasure it, to relive it….
…to seek adventure.
