- 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.

Resin & Rings
I feel a burning desire to make rings.
Rings have been dominating my thoughts.
I must make rings!
As I wish to incorporate new and recycled plastics into the ring designs I keep coming back to the use of resin or acrylic materials. I have some reservations regardings both of these because they have been used so extensively in recent years. I wonder if I can design something new/fresh with them?
US Jeweller Shannon Carey uses resin in a really interesting way . I would describe her resin pieces as new & fresh. Her use of the plastic is so simple as all she seems to make from it is tiny droplets. In these tiny drops she has made use of resins special properties, such as adhesiveness, colour range and lightness, to stunning effect.
