About

My work explores the relationship between the wearer and the jewellery, especially people’s love of playing with jewellery. This has led me to develop movable pieces which have fluidity and movement inherent in the form, and which encourage interaction with the wearer. I describe my work as ‘elegant jewellery with a playful twist’.

I am fascinated by structure and geometry, exploring the effects of rhythm and repetition in three-dimensional forms.

Both Jenny Deans and Amy Chan are fascinated by structure and geometry, exploring the effects of rhythm and repetition. Deans's sensuous, serpentine necklaces of gold and silver are both clever and simply satisfying, like a fugue.
