With a strong interest in responsible jewelry, my aim is to communicate and advocate sustainability and responsible production.
In a world of mass production, I have chosen to handcraft everything in small quantities in my workshop without the use of any mass-manufacturing machinery. By working this way I can maintain quality, reduce waste and carbon footprint and offer unique slow made jewelry.
Through a series of experiments and trials I developed an ancient knitting technique to construct flexible structures with dense patterns. Further traditional practices allow me to manipulate and form the metal to complete the piece to perfection. Each piece is brought to life after hours of meticulous labor and is entirely unique and un-replicable.

All designs are hand crafted through an ancient knitting technique in my workshop in West London. I maintain a low stock production to maintain an ecological balance and to generate the least amount of waste possible.
The sterling silver wire is produced in Italy by a certified manufacturer from silver grains made of recycled silver sourced in Europe. Raw materials and processes are continuously monitored and assessed via a robust Quality Assurance system and all silver used is fully traceable. Non-ferrous metals such as silver do not lose their chemical/physical properties in the recycling process and they can be recycled an infinite number of times with the aim of minimizing the need for mining.
The plating is in large part entrusted to a small family run business in Greece. The platers take all reasonable care to safeguard the environment from aggressive chemicals and all processes are carefully monitored. Re-plating, when needed, might take place in Hatton Garden.
The boxes are made in Italy with FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified cardboard and paper. FSC® certified paper is paper that has been harvested and produced in a responsible manner, therefore is eco-friendly and sustainable.
