Autumn Gold

Here in the Languedoc region of France, our eyes savour the last of the autumn’s golden colours.

After a proliferation of reds and golds displayed in a glorious patchwork of vineyards, the last vestiges of gold are all that remain.

A Mix of Gold

The colour palette of autumn is irresistible. I don’t know how many photographs I have taken over the years, but I never grow tired of the variety of tones. The golden hues, patterns and textures have a mesmerising intensity. I save only the best photographs and the golden colours continue to speak to me from the album.

Rose Gold Jewellery

The rich golden, coppery bronzes in the yellow and rose gold pendant above were undoubtedly inspired by the autumn. An enticing warmth captured in gold that speaks to you and invites you to touch.

My jewellery creations are often a mix of golds … and a mix of textures. Each piece evolves uniquely; exact repeats are an impossibility. Maybe my ideas are romantic, but I believe that jewellery should try to be as special as you are. I’m a Goldsmith creating real opportunities for people to choose unique treasures.

Through the classical skills of traditional workmanship, I create jewellery for the individual.
