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 Passion For Plastic

I just came across a recent article in The Age newspaper regarding the growing prices for vintage plastic pieces (particularly discusses jewellery).

Is this a good thing? I collect these pieces (on a pitiful budget) so that's not good. But could it have any flow on effect by creating a broader interest in contemporary plastic jewellery that say uses vintage plastic or at least is influened by vintage design? That is a big part of what I do, so that would be good.
