Annabet grew up in Hertfordshire, She studied at the University of Brighton and now lives and works in the city.
In 2003 Annabet completed a residency in Australia which gave her invaluable time to experience and enjoy new ideas and techniques. On returning to her workshop she added torch fired enamelling to her palette. Her jewellery has taken centre stage over her silversmithing in the last few years. Her most recent pieces are inspired by still life paintings and the bringing together of objects.
Annabet uses uncomplicated shapes and techniques of construction such as piercing, cold forging and bending small tactile pieces to make her work.
