Helen is a self-taught Goldsmith, with over 20 years at the bench. Her mixed-media background allows her to approach jewellery design from a somewhat unorthodox perspective. Preferring to explore new designs in the workshop, rather than in a sketchbook, she is usually inspired by a particular gemstone or setting which becomes the feature of each piece of jewellery. Helen's unique style has manifested as a growing collection of signature 'Showstoppers!' – predominantly rings. These highly coveted, one-of-a-kind pieces are instantly recognisable, and their mostly organic and asymmetric design stems from her love of architectural detailing and naturally occurring pattern and texture.
