Diana’s most recent work concentrates on jewellery (predominantly in silver, though sometimes with gold and semi-precious stones) and framed boxed pieces; her fascination with the garden and the process of gardening feeding her passion for working in metal.
Drawn from her Danish heritage and inspired by the beauty of Scandinavian simplicity, Diana’s jewellery combines the clean lines of Danish design with a touch of British charm and humour; a celebration of all things flowery and leafy. Her work is a labour of love; intricately hand-pierced flowers and leaves in sterling silver combined with highlights in 18ct gold, designed and hand-made by Diana at her studio in Surrey.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art with a Master’s Degree in Goldsmithing and Silversmithing in 1993, Diana set up her studio in London in 1994 with the aid of a Crafts Council Grant, successfully designing and making jewellery and silversmithing for shows and galleries, nationally and internationally.
Diana has received numerous awards and commissions including a contract to make cutlery for the ‘Sheffield Millennium Canteen’ in 1997.
