- 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.

Husbands really can be such a mixed blessing. Oh yes they can, but mine is coming in rather handy at the moment. It is his Spanish side (Mother) that is proving useful, as he is able to decipher my growing number of Spanish speaking contacts. He can also work out a little Portuguese, or at least tell me when it is this.
It seems that much of the craft/arts of these countries is so vibrant, colourful and fun. Since I don't really know much more than this I plan to research this area in the New Year. Even if I can only get as far as my computer!
My husband is also half-Irish. I'm sure this heritage will come in handing somewhere down the track??
