In 2015, Amanda was selected to exhibit for the first time, and her jewellery was used as part of the extensive PR campaign. An image of her ring from the Concentric collection featured on the front cover of the official fliers, and on posters across the London Underground network. This represented a real watershed moment for Amanda. One where she felt her unique designs were now being recognised at the very top of the industry. That her collections and bespoke pieces were now helping her stand out from the crowd. And that she was boosting the profile of British craftspeople over and above the mass producers.

Freeman of The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths

In 2012 Amanda was made a Freeman of The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths in recognition of her commitment and contribution to the Jewellery industry. The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, more commonly known as the Goldsmiths' Company, is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London and received its first royal charter in 1327. It’s a real privilege and honour to be a member of such an historic and prestigious institution.

BA (HONS) 1st Class degree in Crafts: Manchester Metropolitan University

Amanda worked incredibly hard to achieve her 1st class degree. It was a three year course that was responsible for changing the path of her career. Up until this point Amanda was a textiles artist and studied under RCA graduate Noon Mitchelhill. There are elements of this work and approach that have stayed with Amanda to this day.


“Amanda was an extremely hard-working and self motivated individual. She was quite often locked in the studios by security as she worked late into the night! Her ingenious final collection was skillfully engineered with hidden secrets only accessible by a carefully designed and integrated tool. It was without doubt worthy of a 1st class grade as a mark of excellence” - Peter Chatwin, Lecturer
