I have always been a creative person; jewellery, particularly has been an interest of mine since taking a taster course during GCSE Art. I had been undertaking evening classes for a number of years while teaching full-time, when I was offered a place at BCU to study Design Crafts. Here, I studied both jewellery and small-scale silversmithing techniques. I love handcrafting beautiful 3D pieces of art jewellery. Since graduating, I have been establishing myself as an independent designer/maker.
I also work as an artist and carry out workshops at primary and secondary school. My workshop sessions consist of making jewellery and small decorative objects, working with various mediums (textiles, beads, metal, clay).
In 2013, I set up my independent boutique brand SINTAMANI. My body of work consists of the Blue Lotus, Star Lotus, Holi and Zari collections.
