Terri graduated her BA Hons in Jewellery & Silversmithing in 2014 from Edinburgh College of Art, The University of Edinburgh. Terri was born and grew up in East Ayrshire, although she now works from home near Mennock in Dumfries and Galloway.
Living in the rural countryside in South-West Scotland Terri has always been surrounded by the natural beauty of her country that has influenced her throughout her life. Organic shapes and nature inform her studio practice. Terri works predominately in sterling silver, using yellow gold and semi-precious stones as subtle details. She also has a bespoke range of jewellery made from sheep horn that she finds around the farm. This range highlights material qualities found in horn, such as growth lines and translucency. She aims to create unique delicate pieces of wearable jewellery.
