"I adore the glamour of the mid-century modern era as this is when I grew up and the style of that period has always resonated within me. Retro shapes, patterns and jewellery from those times have an enormous influence in the jewellery I create. I'm also hugely inspired by Africa. It's in my blood, it's where I was born and have spent most of my life, so it's no surprise that African elements, animals and nature are evident in my designs. I have always been inspired by nature.
In nature, every object is one-of-a-kind. My beautiful garden is full of indiginous trees and beautiful birds as it borders on a bird sanctuary and my studio looks out onto this stunning view, so I'm constantly being inspired by the nature that surrounds me.”
