I'm an award-winning jewellery designer, writer and teacher based in London, England. I first began making jewellery in 2001, having already spent many years painting as well as exploring different aspects of fibre and textile arts. Whilst I continue some of these interests, beading, wirework and chain maille are my main love and I try to use them in conjunction with my other interests.

I am fortunate to get to travel the UK, and the World, teaching and sharing my work and am available for private 1-2-1 or small group classes for bead groups, shops etc. Please contact me for more details.

When not teaching I love working on new designs and have a range of instructions available on both this website and bead-patterns.com.

In addition to many projects and articles published worldwide, I am the author of eight books on beading and jewellery making (books 9 & 10 are currently in progress) and was the editor of a bearing magazine for four years. I have also filmed many videos on beading and 2 DVDs are available to purchase here.

If you live in, or are planning to visit London, why not visit my other website Beading in London for more information.
