Using traditional goldsmithing skills, Yvonne’s practice is an exploration of geometry in all its poetic forms.
Her fascination with line, form, volume and the void is where she begins.
Process is key as designs continue to develop whilst at the bench, allowing Yvonne to respond intuitively to materials.
Recent work showcases a bold combination of gemstones and precious metals in an exploration of shadow and light.
Ultimately Yvonne’s aim is to create covetable, thought provoking jewellery.
