I've been loving wearing my C01 knuckle duster ring recently. It's simple enough that I'm determined to make it an everyday piece... because you can wear statement jewellery to the supermarket, right?! • #statementjewellery #knuckleduster #everydayjewellery

So, today in the studio didn't exactly go to plan... I'm fairly sure that the design process isn't plain sailing for anything worthwhile, and I definitely don't want to complain about getting to do one of my most favourite things. But, I am going to acknowledge that today was one step backwards and tomorrow I'll appreciate making 2 steps forward (🤞). Meanwhile, this photo is from the very start of this particular design challenge @cove_park#designprocess #onestepbacktwostepsforward #designchallenge

Architectural drawings: I can't help but think in plan / section / elevation when I design...even if its for jewellery. These are some of the drawings that were part of the design process for C01. • #architecturaljewellery #designprocess #architecturaldrawing

I'm having a dilemma... I really want to share what I've been working on during my residency @cove_park , but I think that maybe I've been so involved over the last couple of days that I can't tell if it's right or ready yet...so for now here's something from my last designing expedition (which actually wasn't that long ago!). • Does anyone else ever feel like they're too close to their design work? I'm hoping that after a break I'll be able to see it for what it really is instead of what I want it to be...and fingers crossed those things match up 🤞 • #artistresidency #designprocess #designermaker

Architectural inspiration. • I'm halfway through my residency @cove_park and I thought I'd share some architecture, my studio is 2 shipping containers with a killer view (more on that later). This is the artist centre designed by Cameron Webster Architects in Glasgow - definitely not a bad place to find some inspiration!! • #architecturalinspiration #scottishdesign #artistresidency

OUT OF OFFICE ! For the next week I'll be taking part in a residency @cove_park - this is time set aside for me to work on designing and prototyping new pieces...and I'm mega excited!! • I received funding for this through a VACMA grant from @creativescots via @cpkcreatives and @perthshirecreates - thank you very much! • Today's task is packing up every tool, sketch book, and piece of metal that I could possibly need for a week of experimenting...which is pretty much looking like the everything in my studio 🙄 • #designstudio #artistresidency #workbench #toolsofthetrade
