The story behind the designs

 

The use of wood as a material in my jewellery, gives me a connection to my Granddad, who was an avid carpenter.

 

My memories of him are strongly tinted with the smell of sawdust and the sound of his deep Yorkshire chuckle.

 

To this day, my Grandmother’s house is full of the furniture that he made with his own hands, while the coffee table he made for my parents now has it’s place in my little flat.

 

One of my favourite moments is getting the pieces back from cutting, opening the box and breathing in the burnt sawdust smell that the laser leaves behind. I hope that the people who receive my packages will also savour that first unwrapping, and perhaps even catch a hint of the smell that always reminds me of my Granddad.

 

I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I have enjoyed creating them. Hopefully, they will be a part of the new memories that you create.
