House of Coco spent some time with her to find out more…
When did you launch the brand and what was the reason behind it?
Soon after graduating last June I began exhibiting the beginnings of my current collection and have been developing the brand since then.
The aim of my work is to create beautiful, wearable art that is sustainable. The items we chose to wear have become a part of how we express ourselves and communicate, so in offering handcrafted, unique and concept-driven pieces, I hope to join the community of designers and makers offering their customers self-curation and self-expression.
To date, what has been the highlight since launching?
Being able to travel to exhibit and sell my work is a wonderful highlight. I love any opportunity to talk to people interested in my work directly, but particularly love the opportunity to be surrounded by other artists, designers and people who love the creative industries, I’ve met some terrific people so far and discovered so much beautiful work! I hope to make ‘jewellery travels’ a regular feature of my future!
