After graduating from the Royal College of Art with a Master’s Degree in Silversmithing and Jewellery in 1993, Diana set up her studio in London, successfully designing and making jewellery and silversmithing for shows and galleries. She now works from her studio at Farnham Maltings in Surrey designing and making jewellery, framed box pieces and silversmithing.
Diana’s jewellery collection is a celebration of garden flora and horticulture.
Diana draws her inspiration from her surroundings, especially the garden. She is influenced by the clean lines of Danish design, botanical drawings and paper-cutting (Scherenschnitte).
Her work is typified by precise hand-pierced garden motifs contrasted with simple shapes such as squares and circles. Designing mainly in silver, Diana uses 18ct gold and semi- precious stones to embellish and accentuate her pieces.
