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.

Plastic Is Fantastic

During the weekly grocery shop I find myself lingering far too long in the hair product isle staring at shampoo that I don't really need. I am seduced by all the pretty coloured bottles and make my choice by colour and quality of plastic and if the labels are stamped on or of the peel off variety. It seems to be irrelevant if I actually need baby shampoo.

I recently came across Rebecca Crawford's website and think that perhaps she shares my interest in the plastic (shampoo) bottle as she has turned some into jewellery (pictured above).
