Specialising in handmade custom jewellery

Based in Melbourne, Australia. 

I experiment with sculptural forms through the use of unusually shaped gemstones and curious settings. My rings are inspired by the personas of my favourite film heroes and villains. Many of my pieces appear simultaneously ancient and modern as they mirror the aesthetics of the films they reference.
