Diana graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone School of Design, Dundee ’98 – achieving a B(des)hons degree in Jewellery & Metalwork and has been making ever since, managing to fit her creative practice in and around having family, She has a family of three children along with a very supportive husband and a cocker spaniel called Fern.
From a very early age she can remember making things, as you do when you’re a child, from sock-puppets to plasticine rockstars, Diana feels she has always meant to make… she has 2 very creative parents that are always turning their hand to new things, they are a big part of her inspiration and support from her family near and ‘far-far-away’ drives her forwards…
She works predominately in silver combined with cast resin and has complete collections as well as working to commission to fulfill the desired design brief.
From simple stunning earrings to more elaborate pendants, neck pieces, bangles, cufflinks and rings. Diana believes being a designer/maker allows her to continue to evolve and create new exciting ideas, she often getting taken away in her imagination to see what can be created, using different materials often sends her off on a tangent and into an exciting new world! Diana’s influences are from the natural world around us, from flora and fauna to beautiful fluid simplistic lines that lend themselves wonderfully to jewellery and wearable pieces.
