Kay is a very experienced Wireworking specialist Jeweller whose complex designs have been featured in Making Jewellery Magazine.
Throughout her life Kay has been an enthusiast knitter, weaving wire was an inevitable leap and a passion for collecting beautiful cabochons and minerals influenced her original desire to create jewellery that could capture these natural treasures, which led her to become an accomplished specialist Jeweller.
As Kay has continued to develop her skills and unique designs she completed a masterclass with Lonely Soldier Designs and has been fortunate to have worked with esteemed Wireworking Jewellery specialists Imnium (Ivona Psak), Iza Malczyk, Nicole Hanna, and Oksana Trukhan at Ursula Jewelry.
First and foremost wire weaving is about the weave, and creating a beautiful even weave is quite an obsession for Kay. After attending various silversmithing courses Kay may also on occasion incorporate soldered elements into her jewellery.
Kay continues to knit and undertakes a wide variety of other crafts including traditional Jewellery making techniques, to aid in the development and dimension of her Wireworking Jewellery and influence her design ideas. She is also a member of the prestigious Association of Contemporary Jewellers.
Kay works in her studio in Cambridgeshire, undertaking commissions for clients, many of whom are in the USA where Wirework Jewellery is held in high esteem and sharing her those skills and techniques with others by teaching.
