Sometimes I see beauty in things that other poeple find strange or are even repulsed by.  I become fascinated when there is somthing you do not want to see and the feeling you get when you do not want to look at something, yet you still do.  

My jewellery deals with the tension that lies between attraction and repulsion.  I take seeminly inappropriate materials, making ordinary and familiar objects seem extraordinary and unfamiliar.
