I was born in Bissoe, Cornwall.
I studied at the Royal College of Music in London,
where I lived for many years.
After a long career as a professional opera singer,
I returned to Cornwall.
I now live near Crowan.
I design and make all my jewellery, using real cultured freshwater pearls, sterling silver and gold.
I am fascinated by Roman jewellery, where the functional develops seamlessly into the decorative.
Many of the pieces that I make are unique, as are the pearls themselves.
The pearls inspire the jewellery that I make - they are the starting point.
Above all, I want to make jewellery that will be worn.
