About Liana

Brisbane, Australia
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 Dust - Sarah Lindsay

Sarah Lindsay makes wonderful delicate plastic jewellery. She is a U.K jewellery designer who says this about working with plastics."Plastics allow me to make jewellery which has an empathy with textiles being colourful, soft and lightweight. The thermoplastic quality and colour range of acrylic, have led me to develop the ‘Dust Collection’, a new process in handmade plastics. I make various grades of dust which are then mixed and heat pressed into multi-coloured surfaces. Heat folding the thin slices has allowed me to move the work into three-dimensions. When constructed, these folded sections create jewellery with a feather-like quality, articulated and coloured on the tips".

I'm always on the hunt for interesting plastic jewellery and have come across her work in books and on the web before and I'd have to say it really is unique. I hope to see her work up close and personal one day so I can truly marvel at her use of colour.

I was thrilled to find Sarah's website
