Jewellery & Silversmithing, Painting

I started my jewellery making journey about fifteen years ago; beginning with textiles and glass beads but then swiftly moving on to working with and manipulating silver. I now produce unique, handmade jewellery pieces which are mostly made in silver, incorporating precious stones and hints of gold. I regularly take on jewellery commissions and recommission old jewellery. My work is inspired by the style of ancient and archaeological artefacts and natural forms and aspires to have a very handmade and almost 'dug up' look. I almost feel that my own Kashmiri background subconsciously filters into my designs. Most of the work has been hand forged but I also use the lost wax casting process. Vibrant colour always plays a large part in both my painting and jewellery. I taught art in rural Berkshire for many years and now I run workshops at my studio based on jewellery making, printmaking, painting and mixed media. I originally trained in Fine Art and now, mostly, specialise in portraiture alongside my jewellery. I feel that my fine art background has definitely had an influence on my jewellery making which is made using a very fluid and organic process.
