There are two streams to my jewellery design: a clean semi industrial one that uses uncomplicated form to create an essential simplicity; a "crusty, artifactual" stream that flows generally in the same direction, though more obliquely.

I am influenced by my Asian ancestry as well as by contemporary industrial design. If there is drama in my work it tends to be quiet and understated and is sometimes enhanced, sometimes moderated, by a personal quirkiness.
