- 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.

mod*mom kindly pointed me in the direction of this fabulous work featured on MoCo Loco
UK designer/artist Stuart Haygarth collects large quantities of objects and then assembles them "in a way that transforms their meaning" to give "banal and overlooked objects a new significance". His designs generally appear to be made from plastics. This makes sense due to the colour range and lightness of the material which lends itself so well to large scale dramatic projects like the chandelier, pictured above.
I have a few ideas for some largish plasticy projects myself. Perhaps I'll fit one or so of these into the coming year...
