As a contemporary jewellery designer and maker Natalie creates dramatic yet wearable bespoke pieces of work to adorn and decorate the body for both special occasions and everyday life. Trained primarily in metalwork but with an aptitude for fabrics and textile design Natalie combines materials such as lace into design collections that explore pattern, repetition and texture. Much of her work involves a strong focus on rich floral aesthetics and bold colourings. Natalie is inspired by fashion and theatrical costume, old school glamour and burlesque, and she translates her references and research into work that varies in both the processes used to design it and the materials chosen to make it. The result is a broad portfolio of work that includes interesting, delicate, but yet strong statement pieces.
