My parents are collectors of antiques and Curios so I spent many a weekend at antique fairs and flea markets as a youth. I would always spend my pocket money on vintage jewellery.

I established Eclectic Shock Jewellery in 2002 after graduating with a Ba (Hons) in Textile Design. Much of my degree show featured hand-knitted wire and beads as cuffs and collars on couture style garments. My first designs (that I started to sell) continued with the knitted wires which incorporated vintage jewellery and I exhibited at wedding fairs. This has developed over the years into my Eclectic Jewellery Designs and Statement pieces. 
I have stocked my jewellery in many amazing places since establishing Eclectic Shock such as The British Museum Shop, The Royal Collection Shop (Buckingham Palace), Jenners and Fenwicks (and many more).
As well as selling online (www.eclecticshock.net), I exhibit at a few events every year and have a number of stockists which can all be found on my website.

I was nominated in 2007 for Scottish Fashion Accessory Designer of the year. 

I also do commissions and work with clients own jewellery to give their pieces a new lease of life and turn them into a fabulous new design.
