Diana won the P&O Makower Silver Commission for the Crafts Council in 1995 and in 1996 was named best newcomer at Chelsea Crafts Fair. She exhibited regularly in group exhibitions and at major crafts fairs with both her jewellery and silversmithing and was commissioned to make cutlery for the ‘Sheffield Millennium Canteen’ in 1997.
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.
She teaches jewellery and contemporary spoon-making at Morley College college too:
