In 2010 I completed a three-year research fellowship entitled Innovation in Vitreous Enamel Surfaces for Jewellery. The project was hosted by the Enamel Research Unit at the University of the West of England, Bristol and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The research involved a practice-led investigation of innovative enamel techniques that was underpinned by theoretical and contextual research into the place of enamel within contemporary jewellery practice. The project culminated in an exploration of how the techniques developed during the research might be employed to address the ideas that underpin my personal practice.
