Janice graduated in 1989 with a BA hons degree in Fine Craft Design – specialising in embroidery. She creates her jewellery and framed embroideries using a combination of hand beading and machine stitching.
Each piece is hand crafted using a sewing machine to build up interwoven layers of stitch. Hand beading is then used to embellish the embroidery, creating a rich and decorative finish.
Janice’s work draws its influence from Islamic Architecture, Kilims, mediaeval tiles and Elizabethan costume. The arts of various cultures have also inspired her while travelling in countries such as India, Morocco and Turkey.
Over the years Janice has built up a portfolio of private collectors both locally and overseas working on one-off jewellery and interior commissions. She also designs bespoke bridal jewellery.
