- 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.

FTV (Fashion TV) is one of the most painful channels to watch. I'm not sure what I dislike most, perhaps it's the irritating filming techniques (jump cuts, changing camera speed and a shaking hand held style that makes you feel sea sick) , the horrid soundtrack, interviews with models & designers in there native language (no subtitles) or the (far too regular) daggy promos. Anyway saying all that it is a channel that I think I should be watching daily. Whenever I switch over and watch it even for a short time (which is usually all I can bare) I see some amazing jewellery. When fashion designers incorporate accessories into their catwalk shows the jewellery more often than not appears to be big, bold and plastic.
For research purposes I will be adding regular viewing of FTV to my schedule. For sanity purposes I'll be taping it and fast forwarding to the good bits.
