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.

A Unique Voice Is A Rare Thing Indeed

I finally got around to watching the season finale of Project Runway 2. I was excited to see the finale 3's amazing collections. This was their Olympus Fashion Week debut, how it be anything less than fab? Well I was so wrong, it wasn't fab it was drab - dull, dull, playing-it-safe, reminiscent of my year 10 formal and oh so ho-hum.

It made me realise how utterly amazing Season 1 winner Jay McCarroll was. Is there really such little talent in the world? Is a truly unique creative voice such a rare thing? I never thought so but maybe now I do.

In the words of Tim Gunn "I was underwhelmed" by those final collections too. Oh do you remember when you saw Jays work and it was just so exciting! But I have just watch a preview o season three and I think we are in for a ride come november...

Jay was so exciting because he just went for it, and his work was spectacular!

Thanks for the Season 3 tip Ramona as I had just about given up any hope that there was any design talent left in the world.
