The Creative Twists and Turns studio is based at Patchings Art Centre, Oxton Road, Calverton, Nottingham NG14 6NU.

From here I create a large selection of limited edition, gift boxed jewellery designs and run creative workshops. My work encorporates beautiful semi-precious gemstones, silver wirework and unique mixed media art jewellery.

Please find below details of current open studio days, I look forward to meeting you soon! Please Contact me to confirm opening times before making a special journey. Visit the Workshops page for more information about these events.
