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.

To Share Or Not To Share

"How did you make that?" Now this isn't a new question but since my audience is now a global one it is getting asked far more often. Most of the time I can answer questions but sometimes I can't. Basically if the question relates directly to the method for creating a design I am currently selling,(a method that took a lot of time, effort and often money to develop)I might not be able to answer it.

My aim is to be a resource person. I want to know everything about every plastic ever. Really what would be the point in building up a large knowledge base if I weren't going to share that knowledge? You know you can't take it with you. So one day I wish to be so informed about plastic jewellery that I could give talks, run workshops and perhaps write a book or at least the odd article (heavily edited of course).

Please feel free to ask any questions, although be aware that you may just get a polite "I'm sorry but I just can't answer that right now, but thank you for your interest".

Liana, months ago I asked you via flickr about bending knitting needles (having just spent a frustrating weekend failing at it!). At the time I had no clue that this was your profession (I thought I was talking to someone who'd made a cool bracelet for herself). I can see now what a faux pas I made!
Your jewellery is fabulous.

Hi Kirsty. I don't mind when I'm asked the "how did you make that" question. I just hope that no one is offended when I can't always answer it.
