Brisbane, Australia
My studio is located in Brisbane, Australia. For the past 10 years I’ve been enjoying creating jewellery designs from an array of mundane materials. Tupperware and knitting needles have remained a firm favourite. My designs have been published numerous times, graced the shelves of many wonderful galleries and stores and been worn by those whose aren’t afraid of colour and attention. All of which I am very grateful for. For several years I’ve also been fortunate enough to work with many businesses as a coach and workshop facilitator.

A few of my favourite things

Danish Jeweller Corina Rietveld has a number of works that really struck a cord with my current interests. These include:

- Using rubber (trying to find the best for longevity/wearability)
- Manufacturing processes - laser/water jet cutting and printing on plastics
- Packaging (love this example - what fun)
- A bit of a floral focus (obsession) all in plastic of course
- Combining(cheap/common) plastics with precious metals/materials
- Not using precious materials and simply using plastic (making that valuable)
