- 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.

Rebecca the Wrecker sent me this image the other day of my necklace poster in Brisbane's Queen St Mall.
This poster has been here for ages. It has been up so long that my excitement over it has faded and I rarely think about it. Although when Miss Rebecca sent me this image I did stop and think about it. I wondered if a rather large image of a necklace that thousands of people walked past daily was doing anything for Contemporary/Art Jewellery in Brisbane. I doubt many people stop to take a good look, but were they absorbing the image in an unconscious way and what could that really mean anyway?
