With my blog, website, online shop and Flickr account I feel I can finally get in touch with real people. Since I left the markets many moons ago I've had only vague notions of who my customers were. I have often wondered "who is buying my work?"
The very first customer to wander into my online shop and say, "I'll take that" was Rebecca Dorris from New York City. The thing that I found particularly interesting was that Rebecca makes jewellery too! Out of glass and plastic! When I check out her website I realised that I had seen some of her work before. Searching through my favourites I discovered I had pasted in an image of her jujube rings. Now these definitely "look like a lolly" to me.

- 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.
