I design and make rough diamond and gem set fine jewellery in sterling silver and various carats of gold from my studio at Cockpit Arts in Central London.
I was born in Sri-Lanka and grew up in Essex just outside London and trained at Loughborough College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art graduating in 1997.
Over the years my style has evolved, and I now, design and hand craft raw diamond and gem set jewellery that takes its inspiration from nature, spirituality, intuition and experimenting with the materials.
I have a serendipitous approach to making and ideas and finished pieces come freely from working directly with the materials and taking an idiosyncratic approach to gold smithing techniques.
My signature 'Raw diamond collection' recognises the raw beauty of a natural uncut diamond and celebrates the quirks that rough diamonds have, where certain parts of the jewellery industry would call these quirks inclusions.
As well as creating evolving collections, I regularly works to commission on bespoke designs.
