I recently undertook various visiting lecturer and sessional teaching roles at colleges, universities and supportive organisations across the country, ensuring I continue my contact and support of students at all levels. I was lucky enough to be invited to lecture at a great project where UWTSD Swansea College of Art welcomed its European AHEH partners and UK enterprise and industry contacts to Swansea to help deliver an exciting programme of entrepreneurial and professional training to their second-year undergraduate students. I delivered a networking and memberships workshop at the New Ashgate Gallery Trust. And took part as a facilitator and panel member of Guilded Conversations by Making Space and presented to the CraftUK partners in World of Wedgewood near Stoke on Trent
I continue a part-time PhD research programme, and I have a continuing interest in education and craft and design practices. When students graduate from jewellery courses there is an under researched period of time between leaving university and beginning a sustainable practice. This stage for jewellery graduates is the centre of my project. I will research and analyse a period of time from leaving education to see if the findings highlight any key actions, decisions and information that graduates live and experience that can inform how we support and empower graduates to establish a longer-term sustainable practice.
As ever I continue my jewellery practice, undertaking commissions and selling my work through various avenues.

Soldering for Jewellers became available in 2017, published by The Crowood Press. Soldering is one of the most commonly used processes in jewellery, but its potential is often overlooked. This practical book explains the basics of the method but goes on to suggest ways in which soldering can be used to explore ideas and produce unique pieces. Written both for beginners and for those wishing to extend their knowledge, Soldering for Jewellers will inspire a more creative use of this key process.
