After completing an honours degree in Jewellery Design at the distinguished Birmingham School of Jewellery, Collette began her flourishing career as a designer maker. In 1995 Collette established her first workshop in the heart of the world famous Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. All of Collette’s designs are still made in her Jewellery Quarter studio.
The beautiful collections that Collette has launched over the past 17 years combine the skill and beauty of fine goldsmithing, and the design excellence achieved from art school training.
Working in silver with gold, her collections include necklace and earring sets,
bangles and bracelets. Collette's work focuses on the straight and the curve, their relationships with one another and the body.

Observations and influenced are taken from both organic and man-made sources, each piece aims to express elements of symmetry, space and balance. Running parallel to this is a continuing technical exploration of the inherent qualities of precious metals.
