I have been fascinated by the mythology, folklore and spirituality of the British Isles all my life. My work is inspired by nature and the art passed down by our ancient ancestors and those who have settled in Britain. In particular I am drawn to the inscriptions found on British Iron Age metalwork, the art of the Celts and Vikings and the rock art of our prehistoric ancestors.

I am lucky enough to have lived in Kent, Wiltshire and Dorset surrounded by some of the most important and sacred ancient monuments in Britain.

I first began combining art and metalwork over 30 years ago when  I gained an A Level in art sculpture.

I now create fine silver pieces using PMC (Precious Metal Clay) a medium in which fine silver particles are suspended in an organic binder. It can be worked much like any other clay. Once a piece is complete and has been left to dry I fire it by hand at a very high heat. When the piece begins to glow red the binder burns away and the silver particles fuse to each other. The final product is a piece of fine silver, or 99.9% silver. (PMC also contains a high percentage of reclaimed and recycled silver!)

Each piece is then cleaned and tumbled before being burnished by hand to highlight individual detail. Finally it is polished by hand to give a high quality finish.

Each piece of jewellery is completely unique, no two pieces will ever be the same. Rock Troll fine silver is hand crafted by me in my studio in the wilds of Dorset.
