- 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.

Saturday's Umbrella Collective show was FANTASTIC! It ran without a hitch thanks to master organiser Kylie Johnson. I'm really not sure what the best part of the day was?
Was it being with my friends and fellow crafters?
Was it meeting so many lovely people who were familiar with my work?
Was it the chance I had to chat and meet new people?
Was it the beautiful location - gorgeous leafy surrounds a hop, skip and a jump from the city?
Was it the fabulous family and friends who helped out so much on the day?
Was it my own collection of goodies I had acquired at the end of the day?
When I was at the Rock's markets potential customers would often say, "do I really need it?" and I would say "no, although it is important to have things that bring you joy and make you happy and something beautiful, original and handmade can do that". Saying that, I expect there was lots of joy spread around last Saturday.
