I have always been fascinated by the universal use of mythology and symbols to represent ideas and emotions.

In this collection, I choose to explore the iconography and symbolism of the ancient Greek goddess Artemis/Diana (Goddess of the Hunt and of the crescent moon). She was the original feminist- strong, independent, confident, decisive, and complete within herself.

My personal longing for these attributes and what Artemis has come to represent has lead me to utilise her symbols as motifs, as did the Ancient Greeks, to invoke a connection between the Goddess and the wearer.

My ultimate desire is for my pieces to be worn as amulets, to provide the wearer the strength and intuitive guidance to be true to oneself... just like our Artemis.
