A pioneer in the 1960s, she explored her Celtic and Norse heritage to find inspiration for stylish, wearable, modern jewellery. Her designs have continued to break new ground, and influence a generation of designers. Her early pieces quickly gained approval at home and abroad, and her name became synonymous with stylish, finely crafted jewellery. She was awarded an MBE in 1999 in recognition of her work both as a designer and as a founder of the modern jewellery industry.
