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.

Craft Therapy

After a week of daily blogging (and upsetting news which I will discuss tomorrow) I was in much need of some craft therapy. So on Monday I made some Tupperware (thank you to Kellee's mum for the brown container) and recycled polyprop. earrings. I felt myself again.

Craft really is a great cure all. My first full time job after Uni was to run craft classes at Westmead Hospital in the Adolescent and Psychiatric Wards. I know from experience that crafting doesn't solve every problem but it sure can help.

I know I am a Drama Queen but I really wasn't trying to be dramatic. I was just referring to Collect closing and the demise of Craft in general.
