‘Night Sky’ is a brass torque with a dyed cow bone pendant engraved with a tree, a star, and comets, flanked by Turkana ostrich egg shell discs and ebony beads. This piece is inspired by the night sky in the Turkana region of Northern Kenya – the cradle of humankind – which until recently had no light pollution.

At Journeys In Between I string stories out of fragments, in material form. With an environmental ethic at their heart, my jewellery pieces emerge from journeys deep and wide and speak to our human and planetary condition. My aesthetic is influenced by a Kenyan childhood, a formative part of my adult life spent living in Iceland, and a deep reverence for the natural world. The materials I use are mostly recycled or natural, woven through with the raw beauty of nature.
