Environmentally sustainable, handmade designs

Winner of the Ingle and Rhode Fairtrade Gold Design Awards 2017.

Shortlisted for Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation Scholarship 2016.  

Website to follow shortly.

Delicate and contemporary jewellery, sculpture, interiors and installation adeptly handcrafted from both natural and reclaimed or recycled materials. A plethora of inspiration is provided by nature in all its beauty and savagery, and from its precarious juxtaposition with the man-made.  Every piece is made with its future deconstruction in mind; each element can be broken down and used again, returned to nature or recycled.

All silver pieces are made from ecosilver which is recycled from scrap.
