My career in jewellery started with bone carving. I soon realised the limitations of bone and my deep need to learn more.

Moving into precious metals and including stones where  appropriate has expanded my design possibilities. I had formal training  and then worked for other manufacturing jewellers.

I am very tactile and have also done some sculpture work which I also enjoy. Now I no longer have a retail shop I am excited about creating my own pieces with less commercial orientation

Louise's work can be seen at The Little Black Gallery during KOAST and during the rest of the year.
