During my final year i won several awards including recieving a Silver Award in the Platinum design category at the Craftsmanship and Design Awards (Goldsmith's Craft and Design Council) and was also shortlisted for the V&A Student Jewellery Design Award. As well as this i was one of four Jewellery Design students to create work for "The Bone Project" by Andrew Ross, which was awarded the Swarovski Crystal Palace award at New Designers 2009.
Since then i have worked in two jewellery design jobs, one being very focused on hand drawing skills and the other very much involved with computer aided design. As a result of this i am confident and willing to undertake design jobs using either method.
